An update window usually appears on my screen when I begin a session, but instead of showing the usual (for some time 'usual') icon for upgrading to High Sierra, the icon read "installed" and when I asked for <Apple/Software update...> the response was "no updates available". With <Apple/About this Mac> the response remains "version 10.9.5".

Despite not recalling how the app got there, I opened it and clicked on Install. Nothing seemed to happen. Eventually a window appeared which announced that <macOS High Sierra> will be installed on "MacIntosh HD" which seemed okay, and finally a progress bar appeared, after a second or third tap on the "Install" icon. After three hours the progress bar was about 20% full. I knew the install would be slow because I have the slowest connection possible with my ISP.

I really can’t tell you what is happening from where I sit. I would call Apple’s support line at ‭(800) 800-2775‬.

Good luck!
