Hey there shenvee,


Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities. I understand you’re having issues downloading apps on your Mac after updating to macOS Catalina. You’ve done some great troubleshooting so far and I’ll be happy to help with this.

Have you tried updating apps in safe mode or a test user account? If not, try both of these to isolate and possibly resolve this issue:


Checked account setting on Catalina in system preferences and 2 Factor login is turned on. For me, I went to my settings app, signed out of my iCloud account, waited a minute and then signed back in. Then, I restarted the Mac app store app and was able to sign in and get my app updates.


If that doesn’t help, trying reinstalling macOS using the steps from the following link to help you keep your files and user settings intact:



Even though this should not affect your data, it’s always a good idea to back up your Mac before taking these steps:



Let us know if this helps.


Best wishes.

** UPDATE 12/03/2020**

A lot has changed in Catalina. Admittedly, I am not a MacOS expert. I'm not particularly good a Mac user either.

Apr 20, 2020 Why is the App Store not working on macOS Catalina? Let’s get the basics covered before we move on to App Store specific issues on macOS Catalina. The most common reasons why the app store may not be working on your Mac are poor Wi-Fi connection, different Apple ID, proxy setup in-network, VPN setup with enhanced security settings or the. MacOS Mojave: if you'd like to download macOS Mojave (the latest at the time of writing), Apple's website states that you'll need a MacBook Pro produced in mid-2012 or more recently. It also states that you can update directly to Mojave from all of its Mac operating systems as far back as OS X Mountain Lion (2012).

I followed my same procedure below after downloading Catalina and Big Sur.
** I increased the image sise to 13GB as Some Catalina versions were greater than 8GB and Big Sur is 12.9GB
hdiutil create -o /tmp/catalina -size 13000m -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J
hdiutil attach /tmp/catalina.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build
/Applications/Install macOS Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_build
hdiutil convert /tmp/catalina.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Downloads/catalina
mv ~/Downloads/catalina.cdr ~/Downloads/catalina.iso
Next, I copy the ISO to a external system (my desktop) an a network drive where I will install from.
Name it, I use macos-catalina
Pick a folder, Pick a Server/resource Pool and Pick Storage
For Compatibility, click the dropdown and select ESXi 6.7 Update 2 and later
For Select OS, click the Gueast OS Family drop down and select Other
For Guest OS Version, click the dropdown and select Apple macOS 10.14 (64-bit)
Under the datastore, I choose Disk Provisioning Thin Provision
To install, I open a remote console on the VM
App store not working catalina
Select VMRC - > Removable Devices -> CD/DVD Drive1 -> Connect to Disk Image File (ISO)
In the OS boot menu, select SATA CD/DVROM, then boot to the installer
Give the disk a name
Start the macOS installer and complete the install steps. This takes about 45 minutes total.
Once installed, disconnect the ISO from the console client.
Reboot one last time to make sure it still boots OK.

** UPDATE 04/15/2020**
Seems you need to start at Mojave to be able to download the full Catalina package from the App Store. I started from Mojave so I never ran into the issues found in the comments. Check the comments for what Adam had to say...
** UPDATE 10/17/2019**
After applying the first update, the VM was rendered un-bootable again. That is the same crash that is originally experienced. SEE Boot Work Around at the bottom.
This exercise was to get a running MacOS Catalina VM instance running on VMware. I first wrote this for Catalina Beta but afte rthe official release, a couple things changed. So now it is how to install Catalina on ESXi 6.7.
I am using a 2013 Mac Pro with VMWare 6.7 U2 installed. I have High Sierra and Mojave VMs running on the host. Running VMs on VMware is something I've done for a few years.

The MacOS Part

As of this writing (10/10/2019), You cannot upgrade and existing VM running High Sierra or Mojave. At least, I could not successfully upgrade and boot to Catalina.

If at first You Don't Succeed...

Note: You need to start at Mojave to upgrade to download the fill Catalina package.
I started with trying to upgrade a Mojave VM to Catalina. I just downloaded Catalina from the Apple Store (Search: macos catalina).
I followed the prompts and downloaded the Catalina installation image. I ran though the installation process which seemed to go pretty well. That is until it booted from the upgraded image. Then, it crashed. You can't see the crash, you just has an frozen Apple logo.

App Store Not Working After Catalina Update


To see what is happening, reboot the VM and hold down the Windows Key + v for Verbose mode and see the boot attempt and the kernel panic. Changing VMware setting had no affect. After a couple hours, I gave up.

Try Something Else... And It Worked!

My next tack was to boot from a Catalina ISO. First, I had to create one. I'd done this before on Mojave so it wasn't all unfamiliar. The steps are below. I am not sure where they came from.
First, I had to boot back to Mojave. I had found by rebooting the VM to the Boot Manager settings (you can set this in the VM settings or press escape before the OS loads in a VM console) and Selecting the EFI VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive (0,0) option (not Mac OS X), that boots to my original Mojave image.
To start from scratch on a Mojave instance, download Catalina from the app store (Search: macos catalina). Just don't run the installer. You need the app image to create the ISO.
Once Mojave loaded, to build the ISO file, I start by making the virtual disk:
hdiutil create -o /tmp/catalina -size 13000m -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J
Then, I mount it to I can copy the installer to it
hdiutil attach /tmp/catalina.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build
Macbook
sudo /Applications/Install macOS Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_build
The image is automatically mounted and is on your desktop. Select it and un-mount the image.
Now convert the image to an ISO file. You can put the file anywhere but I used ~/Downloads for simplicity
hdiutil convert /tmp/catalina.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Downloads/catalina
Now rename the file from catalina.cdr to catalina.iso
mv ~/Downloads/catalina.cdr ~/Downloads/catalina.iso
Copy the ISO to your PC or where ever you want to attach it to the VM via a console session. I use WinSCP to copy to my PC.

The VMware Part

I created a blank VM with the following settings:
These are important. Just follow my lead here.
4GB Memory

Once the VM is saved, edit the settings and change to
Guest OS: Windows
Guest OS Version: Windows 10 64-bit
Changed to Windows 10

Click VMRC --> Removeable Devices --> CD/DVD --> Connect to Disk Image File
Navigate to the catalina.iso file you saved where ever, Click Open
Attach ISO
Now ALT+CTRL+Insert in the VM to reboot it. It will boot from the ISO automatically. If not select the SATA CDROM frm the EFI menu. Note, sometimes it took several reboots for it to successfully boot from the ISO. usually, just one.
Once the installer image loads, use the disk tool to erase the VMware virtual disk (100GB in my case)
Use the default erase options (Note: Your keyboard doesn't work so just accept 'Untitled')

Follow the install steps and install Catalina
Once the install finishes, it will reboot to the OS. Make sure you detach the ISO so you don't boot to the installer again.
Reset the VM
The VM should boot to the image and continue installing Catalina. When it finishes (10 or so minutes) it will reboot.

After the reboot, it will freeze on the blank Apple logo or unsuccessfully load MacOS X. Don't fret.. We're OK.
Power off the VM
Guest OS Version: Apple macOS 10.14 64-bit

App Store Not Working Macos Catalina Installer

Power on the VM and it will boot to and load Catalina.
Once you go through the setup steps and Catalina is ready to go.

After applying the update, the VM was no longer booting. Same cast at boot with the Apple Logo and no progress.
the work around is to change the boot order in EFI boot settings to boot to SATA Hard Drive 0.0
You need to enter EFI boot configuration for the VM. You can hit escape a the VMware logo or go to the VM settings and set to boor to EFI next boot. Boot/reboot to get the EFI menu

App Store Not Working Catalina Version

Enter Setup
Configure Boot Options
Change Boot Order
Press Enter then change the boot order in the pop up window using + and - keys. Press Escape when done editing.
Move EFI Virtual SATA Hard Drive (0.0) to the Top
