Yes. I tried following the steps and this is the result

chown root /Library/LaunchDaemons/upgradetor.plist 
chown: /Library/LaunchDaemons/upgradetor.plist: Operation not permitted

It looks like I might be a little bit screwed, I tried this both as the root user and admin user. Is there a way to be notified when a new tor version is released? I guess but updating doesn’t matter much as a relay restart is required when tor is updated to begin with...

I changed the permissions for the whole lanchdaemons folder as well and still no resolve to this. I even tried signing into the root user in Terminal to see if that would resolve the issue, it did not.
