I'm currently on Yosemite. I never update the software on my system until and unless the update is 48 hours old. I press on 'Try again tomorrow' but I'm never given second chance to update my software. What might be the cause of this issue? How can I get the software update on time as per my will?

I’m sorry but there are no frequent updates on Mac OS X. An update is released on a timely basis and as a single package update. This is different with Microsoft Windows where the operating system automatically checks for updates and install them. The updates in Microsoft Windows are more frequent than with Mac OS X.

If you want your operating system to automatically check for updates and then notify you when they are ready to be installed, go to the Apple menu then select System Preferences. Go to the App Store then check the boxes for “Automatically check for updates” and “Download newly available updates in the background”.

When the 3 remaining options are checked: “Install app updates”, “Install OS X updates”, and “Install system data files and security updates”; you will not be notified for applications and operating system updates. They will be installed automatically. Aside from doing the update using the Software Update, which was renamed to App Store in Mac OS X Yosemite, you can also visit Apple Support Software Updates and Downloads to check all the available updates for different Mac OS X operating systems.
