Another oddity is that I was able to use timecapsule to restore a backup I had made several years ago. It took a while, but it loaded and the computer worked, albeit very slowly.

But I can not use disk utility to download and install Mojave to the computer. The download seems to be ok, but the installation always fails towards the end of the installation.

Would a hd problem allow for the failure of the Mojave installation but let the 3 year old backup be written to it?
