In doing a security update 10.12.6, it asked for a restart. The computer will not restart nor shutdown. Thoughts?

H264 is an up-and-coming web format. I think if you upgraded your software from the 10.5.6 you are showing to a near-current version, you would find the support is included.

I found the fix: it was as simple as removing the username from the share configurations in AutoMounter. When you configure a share in AutoMounter, you may (don't have to) enter a username for authentication. If you don't enter one, you simply enter it when you are asked for the password, if it has never been entered (in the password prompts I received so many times).

I had a username in the configuration all the time, but for some reason, this became a problem after the security update. I read here (https://eclecticlight.co/2018/01/24/what-is-in-the-sierra-security-update-2018-0 01/) that the security update made changes to Keychain Access.

 

The hint came from the developer, by the way. So I didn't really find the fix myself Glad I received the hint though, I would have probably never thought of that.

 

Thanks to every who tried to help anyway, I really appreciate it

MacPro 2008 running El Capitan, installed security update no problem.

How long did you wait to allow your Mac to boot after installing the update, mine took about 5 minutes.

Have you tried. PRAM reset, How to reset NVRAM on your Mac - Apple Support SMC reset.How to reset the System Management Controller (SMC) on your Mac - Apple Support

Or even a Safe boot, Use safe mode to isolate issues with your Mac - Apple Support

 

Or are you running software that might interfere with the installation and restarting of your Mac any login items for example or any anti virus, which you do not need.

 

You could always try this, http://etrecheck.com/ and post the results back here, no personal info is included.

 

and you could also try downloading the update from here, Download Security Update 2018-001 (El Capitan)

once downloaded double-click to install.

At some point if it just sits there for an hour, you will just need to hold the power button down and turn it off. It could just be that some app that was running refuses to acknowledge the shutdown command being issued by the kernel. Sometimes the kernel can kill the thread but not always.

More than likely, the update got installed and it should boot as normal.

Thanks for all answers.

I managed it this way: Restored the system again, installed Java 8 supplied by Oracle, placed fake Java 6 docs at the place CS6 expects them and Finder, Illustrator, Photoshop runs again. I am happy!

Thanks for your help everyone. I didn't find anything wrong with my system. However, I did solve the problem. Somehow, Java got turned off. So, certain web pages were not working on Safari, but were working on other browsers. With me, updating leads to tinkering. So, it was probably me.

 

Problem solved!

 

Thanks!
