Interesting; I didn't have to use that tool, as it "just worked" and my 
local Mac shop (from whom I bought my 2nd-hand MBP) recommended Sierra 

But I wanted to use Garage Band etc.

Apple is trying to force me (a pensioner) to buy the very latest, but I 
don't see them contributing towards the cost...
