Funny, I had this a week ago and installed it.  Then a few days ago popped up again in Updates.

What could be the reason?  As the information is the same.


Is there a revision to the first 11.5 update?


Thanks Allan

Installing Big Sur 11.5.1 now, via Mac Appstore. I need to have SIP disabled or partially disabled. This not gives me notification when a OS update is on the way. My csr-active-config is: FF0F0000. Is any way to have SIP partially disabled, but to get OS updates notifications in System Preferences? Thank you in advance.

@XanthraX It's been said before, SIP flag AppleInternal (bit #5) must be kept disabled (set to 0) or you won't be offered any Big Sur updates. As such, do not set csr-active-config to 0xFFF (this sets all SIP flags to 1) but 0xFEF.
