If you own one and you've run into insurmountable obstacles attempting to download the latest version of OS X Mountain Lion, then the mini is certainly on your mind.
Several users recently took to Twitter to bemoan the computer's inability to install OS X 10.8.2.
"After 5 hours and four reinstalls…I find out the 2012 Mac mini cannot be upgraded to 10.8.2," one tweeter vented. "#WTF."
What's going on?
CNET reported Monday that the OS X update isn't available through the App Store's Software Update service.
Downloading it with 10.8.2's manual updater doesn't work either, as this message appears after a failed attempt: "Error: OS X Update can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update."
Apparently, the hitch is that the new Mac mini requires a special version of the 10.8.2 update. Apple actually posted one on the App Store, but pulled it last Friday without offering up a replacement.
Cupertino's stayed mum on what's going on, while new reports also point out that the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and new 21.5-inch iMac can't receive the 10.8.2 update either.
From the looks of it, something rotten is going on with Apple's software systems.
