Spotify installation fails on new MacBook Pro

Spotify installation fails on new MacBook Pro

Plan:

Premium

 

Country:

USA

 

Device:

MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Pro chip

 

OS:

Ventura 13.1

 

My Question or Issue:

My installation of Spotify fails in the same place each time:

  • I download the official installer from spotify.com and run it
  • A dialog window with a progress bar opens that first says "Downloading Spotify", and then subsequently "Installing Spotify
  • After perhaps 10 seconds, an error dialog message opens with:
    • The title "Installation Failed"
    • Dialog reading "An error ocurred while trying to mount the downloaded Spotify disk image"
    • 2 buttons that read
      • "Download from Spotify.com" - clicking this button does nothing
      • "Quit" - clicking this button closes the install process

Hey @connerpate,

 

Thank you for reaching out here in the Community!

 

We'd suggest that you try to install the app in Safe Mode. More info on how to start this mode on your Mac you can find here


It's also a good idea to check if your firewall isn't blocking Spotify. If that's the case, head to this article to see how to change your Firewall settings. 

 

In case you're still having issues installing the app, let us know. We'll do our best to help you out!

 

Cheers!

Hi Lyubka,

I tried installing in Safe Mode and got the same error. My firewall is currently inactive, so I'd guess that's not the issue.

Appreciate any further guidance you can give.

Thanks,

Conner

Hi there @connerpate,

 

Thanks for the info. Try using the clean reinstall steps to remove any traces of Spotify you may have, then try the install again. Also try the steps across different networks, even a hotspot made from your phone. Also if you have a VPN or some kind of proxy server active, please deactivate those/try the install on a network without the restrictions.

 

Hope this helps.
