After installing macOS 12.0.1 Monterey, T5 (which had been working fine with Big Sur) gives the message "Failed to check for free space or failed to check for volume". Attempts at reinstallation get "This package is compatible with this version of macOS". How is this happening yet again? Doesn't Apple speak to suppliers like Samsung before a new macOS is introduced? Right now: does anybody know a fix?
Samsung Customer Care replied to this next day, 10 November, asking for the SSD T5 model number, which I provided. The problem persists: I still get "Failed to check for free space or failed to locate a volume" but also "Current software is up to date".
BTW: I've no idea how "**bleep**" got into my message header.
