'The requested version of macos is not available - macOS Catalina [Resolved]

I have nothing more to say other than I can't seem to download macOS Catalina beta... it's not available apparently?

screenshot

I even followed this link, which shows the update in the app store: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/macos-catalina-beta/id1455661060?mt=12

I have the Feedback app installed and everything, I've restarted my mac and it's the 2019 mac so it's not like it won't be supported. Any help?

I fixed it when I ran these commands:

sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL


sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --set-catalog https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.15seed-10.15-10.14-10.13-10.12-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz

For me I was stuck with a terminal that refused to open. I ended up deleting the previous beta installer I found on the second page of the launch pad. Once I deleted it and then re-ran the macOSDeveloperBetaAccessUtility.pkg file again I was able to download and install the newest beta.

Worked for me. Ran the software from Apple, Got the Error message clicked ok Started a terminal and rand the commands with the update windows still on screen.

sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL

sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --set-catalog https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.15seed-10.15-10.14-10.13-10.12-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz

Then it started to check again and found catalina beta.
