Enclosed is a document giving the technique I use to initially download and install the Sage Math app for sagetex use. It also describes what I do when I update the Sage Math app.

The only behavior that needs attention under Catalina is that I add the Sage Math app to the Full Disk Access list otherwise the first time you try to run the app itself there is a long pause while it tries to read a file before you are asked for permission---very annoying. If you run a Terminal Session from within the app the first time you will also be asked it it can use Apple Events and control Terminal.

Good Luck,
