I'm on 11.2.3, OC 6.4

I have tried several ways to update; throug System Prefs, from AppStore, with USB stick, Recover Mode. No luck, the update is not being applied.

1: System Prefs says an update is available, I select update
2: It takes 20min to download and automatically goes to reboot
3: I get the black screen with the Grey Apple and the line moving across the screen (no text saying it's updating)
4: It reboots
5: Pickerlist doesn't have any new volumes to boot from
7: Same 11.2.3 version...nothing has been applied.

I couldn't find really any reason or fix to this.
Maybe it has something to do with broken APFS seal and the snapshot.

Any ideas?

Disk utility gives info
- error: Cross Check : ExtentRef physical extent (0x4c14dc0 + 4) has kind APFS_KIND_UPDATE but was not referenced previously
-warning: bitmap store: address 576460752383200680 is beyond maximum allowed 231032240

There was an update to the patches to fix some booting issues with 11.3. Not sure if related, but if you haven't got that, it could be the problem.

You need to upgrade to OC 0.6.9. to do so, as OC 0.6.4. is not going to cut it for 11.3.
You will also need the latest set of AMD Kernel patches. > https://github.com/AMD-OSX/AMD_Vanilla
You'll need to add those first back into your EFI before proceeding to reboot. You also may need to disable
AlGrey's second to last patch on the AMD Kernel list and enable Shanee's last patch.
If you still have problems booting you may need to disable SecureBoot in Misc in the config.plist.
