And that's why we don't do...

What about in Safe Boot? Did you update the OS on the source, but then use Smart Update so your data volume and system volume are mismatched?

You have an expired root certificate. Send me email and I'll give you some steps that will help you fix your system.

This is why you're likely finding occasional security errors on web sites, too.
