Is there a reason the Mac mini M1 wouldn’t get this update? I’m on 13.1 and it insists I’m up-to-date. I have a great internet connection, I’ve repeatedly restarted and refreshed the software update page and still nothing.
I just updated to Ventura 13.2, suddenly I cannot see any of my HDDs! I can see SSDs connected externally, but not my array of USB drives. Can I reverse the update? I have not been using Time Machine
Did you open Disk Utility and see if the app finds the external drives? You might also try disconnecting the drive(s), rebooting the Mac, and reconnecting after the Mac boots back up. Try a different USB port as well, you never know.

System Settings > General > Software Update shows that I’m on macOS Ventura 13.0.1, last checked today (01/24/2023) 7:20 AM and is currently up to date. Hmmm…
Make sure the Mac is connected to the internet, then try hitting Command+R a few times while you’re at that software update screen to refresh the update. 13.0.1 is several releases behind.
You can also turn to the command line if all else fails
BEWARE: this update reordered all my many, many saved Safari bookmarks. They are now in some random order.
