        I had a problem with 11.1 not upgrading so did what was recommended elsewhere in these forums: delete it from Apps and download again from the App store.   Today there's an update to 11.2 and let the system try to update as before.   Downloads the 7.6GB file, tries to update, and then exits stating it can't be upgraded and to try later.

         

        Would someone at Apple care to have a look?

         

        Currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.

          I thought I would explore the forums and see what commentary ther was on Xcode 11.2.  I'm in the process of doing exactly the same update.  The first thing I will do after the update has completed is reboot my MacBook just in case, by not doing so, there is a likelihood that Xcode will crash.

          What surprses me is that Xcode 11.2 is not listed in the Downloads (other) on the Developer site.  It normally is when there is an update.

              For some reason they seem to have cleared the download section…

               

              But of course, available on Appstore, and through (direct from Apple menu).

              I just did it a few hours ago, without a glitch.

               

              May be servers were a bit busy when you tried ?

              I faced exactly the same behaviour.

              Can't understand why Apple wants to test oir skills fixing their issues.

               

              I have sent a report to Apple and see what will be the reply.

                Exactly same problem here, already Appstore tried to complete the downloading 3 times; but always fails to installs and automatically starts downloading again.

                  Same here! MacOS 10.15 Catalina, trying to update Xcode 11.1 to 11.2.

                  App Store Downloads the installer but throws an error while trying to install it.

                  Tried it 5 times so far, all with same result.

                  Apple, please help!

                    Hello

                     

                    I am also facing this issue, after upgrading the Mac OS to 10.15.1, I am able to update the Xcode 11.2

                    Then we can run our build in iOS 13.2 devices.

                      You better wait on the update if your project has any UITextView in the storyboard.

                      You application will crash on older devices as soon as the controler displaying UITextView appears on the device.

                        I could finally install XCode 11.2 from the Appstore.

                        Don't know if it's related but it was just after I updated Catalina to 10.15.1

                          Exactly the same behavior.  Trying again after a reboot, but am not optimistic.  Thanks for reporting this to Apple.

                           

                          (I find 11.1 very buggy (esp for SwiftUI), hopefully 11.2 fixes these issues).

                            I am also having the same problem updating Xcode, first with 11.1 and now with 11.2.  Starting with the 11.1 update, it would get to 80%, start over, and then back at the 80% point it would say,   “Unable to Download App. Xcode could not be installed. Please try again later.”

                            I tried several times, even restarting my iMac Pro, more than once.  On Oct 28, I called Apple Support.  The agent at first tried uninstalling Xcode and attempting a fresh installation.  After that did not work, he asked me to download and run Malwareybytes.  It showed my Mac was clean.

                             

                            Finally he asked me to do a PRAM reset:  https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/reset-macs-smc-pram/

                            This time, the "fresh" installation succeeded and I now had the 11.1 version.

                             

                            However, today, Nov 1, when I saw that 11.2 was available, I started the update, but again had the same problem.  It would get to 80%, restart, get back to 80% and again say, “Unable to Download App. Xcode could not be installed. Please try again later.”  This time, I just tried the PRAM reset.  It did not help.  Doing an uninstall and a PRAM reset each time there is an Xcode update is something that needs to be fixed, as this problem is occuring with too many users/developers.

                              Just like 11.1, 11.2 will not even download here from the App Store. Gets to about 80%, stalls, times out. See my post below on this problem with 11.1.

                                I can't update either, wasn't even notified of an update. I just bumped into the need once trying to deploy to iOS 13.2

                                Stuck on Xcode 11.0 for now, unable to push to iOS13.2

                                 

                                Running Mojave 10.14.6 (and not willing to update to 10.5.X just yet)

                                  The last macOS update (10.15.1) seems to have fixed the upgrade issue of XCode: simply upgrade macOS first, then try upgrading XCode.

                                    Upgraded my mac to macOS 10.15.1 in hopes of that fixing the XCode update issue, like it seems to have helped others on this forum.

                                     

                                    No joy.  The update-progress-icon circle closes, and then changes back in to the UPDATE button. 50 minutes or so per attempt.  Have tried several times with reboots in between.    XCode remains at 11.1.

                                     

                                    I've spent much of the day on this.

                                     

                                    Is Apple engineering losing its touch?    I've always had pretty good luck with Apple's software products, but lately....  XCode 11.1/buildsystem is crashing frequently, iOS 13 is very buggy (mail app is still virtually unusable despite frequent updates to the OS), iOS connectivity wtih my car's phone system issues,  and others.  ANd obviously lots of people are having issues with this 11.2 update.  What gives???

                                        It is really 'unfortunate' but I think the best is to stay (if we still can) with iOS 13.1 and probably XCode 11.1 for production. Just use 11.2 possibly for development. In the same logic, I've decided to delay migration to Catalina until all this is fixed.

                                        They probably need a few more days or weeks to stabilize all this, hope they will send a clear message when it's fixed.

                                        I have a same problem when updating to xcode 11.2. At first, the message of launchpad's status told me "Downloading x.xx of 4.16 GB". After done downloading, the message showed me "Installing", but after for a while, the download process started again automatically, and the message said me that "Downloading x.xx of 7.78 GB". In addition to that, even worse problem is occuring to me. The size of Other among Storage is keep growing now, even it is over now 60 GB now. I don't know how it will take over my storage.

                                            This might be a server problem, each time I tried it got to a different point and stalled, indicating it was at full size, but was not. It did download faster and further after 15.1 upgrade, although it still took about 25 minutes to finish.

                                                You have to update to 10.15.1. The bug is that they are allowing us to see the Xcode update even though our operating system wasn't qualified to run it. Instead of telling us that with the error, it just said it couldn't be installed. Update to 10.15.1, then update again and it should work fine.

                                                  I have the same problem - tried to download Xcode 11 three times but failed each time on last quarter. There seems to be no other way of getting it either - nothing in Downloads for developers. Quite frankly I am ****** off - I can't install my apps on my main devices now because I stupidly updated them all to 13.2. Come on Apple *** are you doing about this??

                                                      When checked in system perference, in the apple id icon it shows notification to sign-in to icloud.  With this sign in , after trying upgrade worked.

                                                      Why it is made mandatory to forcibly sign-in to icloud. Observed in iPhone also using remainders also asking for upgrade which in turn asks icloud sign-in?

It is fully stable, but Xcodes - any of the most recent - continually fail to load on the first attempt. I thought this was due to a lack of storage space, bt I have 66GB which should be enough now - and yet I'm still getting stuck with a small gap in the loading circle at the top.... whic has JUST closed ... it took two hours to do the last degree ! So - I'm OK now... shall I ditch this post ? No - because I can tell you I had to wait for two hours !
