gibMacOS stuck at catalog download

See original GitHub issue

When I run gibMacOS under macOS, the program seems to stop working at the “Downloading Catalog” phase. This issue is only present in macOS, under Windows, gibMacOS works as excepted. I tried running gibMacOS with python2 and python3, and get the same result. Issue is present on same machine with both Catalina and Big Sur (clean install).

Here’s a screenshot for more clarity:

Please let me know if I can help with providing more information about my system/setup. Greetings!

@alex-spataru Ideally, we’d use the same user-agent that macOS’s Software Update uses. I’ll need to do some research to figure out what that is though.

In the meantime, I’m okay with just changing the user-agent. I’ll create a PR.

Downloader is setting the user-agent to just Mozilla. As a test, I modified the class to default to another user-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/84.0.4147.89 Safari/537.36 Edg/84.0.522.44.

With this user-agent I was able to download the catalog and all the metadata without issue or timeouts.
