El Capitan App Store Link

12/4/2021

I think the title is pretty selfdescribing, but ok 🙂

Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan interface. Sep 21, 2017 Question: Q: El Capitan dmg download. Does anybody know where I cound download an El Capitan dmg? The app store has unfortunately taken it out. All the Links that refer to the app store don't work anymore. So is there an archive for all the pevious OSX versions? Apple has released OS X El Capitan as a free update to all Mac users. The new version of system software is officially versioned as OS X 10.11, and the final build number is 15A284. Users can start the download now from the App Store using the direct link below. OS X El Capitan brings performance updates and improvements to the Mac operating.

I go to App Store, I click on download button on OS X El Capitan (it is listed under Utilities), and nothing happens and the El Capitan is not downloaded, nor does it change the status to 'Downloading'. I don't think it is downloading. I also tried to log in as root to the mac and now the App Store won't work – it keeps spinning the spinner sign and nothing happens, I can't even type the letters 'El Capitan' in the search box. Anyone has any other link, URL for downloading of El Capitan, other than the one on App Store? Losing my faith in Apple slowly……
I am on Macbook 7.1 (Mid-2010).
