How to fix MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.7 stuck on App Store

Filed Under (Digital Ant) by ashardi on 18-04-2015

First of all, I’m on OS X Yosemite (10.x.x) and I have this “MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.7” showing on my App Store update list. I updated it (restart required), it did restart, but the update is still there. I try to update it again, click on the restart button, but no process coming afterward. This is madness, I hate looking at annoying red circle with numbers in it šŸ™

So, here’s the fix:

  1. Open Disk Utility
  2. Choose the your system hard drive
  3. On First Aid tab, search fir Verify Disk Permission button, and click it
  4. While it’s in process, you’ll see the log activity of the wrong file/folder’s permissions
  5. After the verify process is done, click on the Start/Fix Permission Repair, just below Verifiy Disk Permission button
  6. UpdateĀ MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.7a via App Store, then Restart as prompted.
  7. Check again forĀ MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.7 in App Store, mine was havingĀ 3 updates, maybe it because of the accumulated pending updates.

And…. you’re done šŸ˜‰
