  2. Once macOS 10.15 Catalina is installed and you are booted from it, make sure you are connected to the internet by using a web browser to go to Apple.
  3. Go to the latest version of macOS Server (5.10) on the Mac App Store .
  4. This should open the Mac App Store application (if it doesn't click the 'View in Mac App Store' button).
