I keep getting this:Xcode can’t be installed on “Macintosh HD” because OS X version 10.13.6 or later is required.

I understand that it means I need a different software version (I think??), but I never down my own software, I just let the automatic updates keep me uptodate. So if Im uptodate, why is it the wrong software and how do I change please?

Not to worry, after some research i found out that I had a very old operating system from 2012! (I have automatic updates so thought I would have the newest one) and was able to upgrade to Mojave, so everything now works just fine.
