Updating pirated os x
will do, as you can still get the combo updater to 10.10.5 It's always wise to get a new OS download, even if you don't intend to install it right now - just so it's always in your history.
I have every OS back to Lion in my purchase history - good for if I ever need a disposable OS for testing etc.
I would like to avoid mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan) for a while if possible.
Is my only option at this point to download a mac OS 10.10.5 installer from some non-Apple website somewhere or does Apple have any accommodations to allow end-users to download mac OS 10.10.5 from them in some way?
The only way to get an older OS directly from Apple is to have previously 'purchased it' - even if it was free - then it will appear in your purchase history in the App Store.
If it's not in your purchase history, then you'll have to get it from a trustworthy friend [or less-trustworthy torrent etc] 10.10.
I assume those updates are only useful for someone already running 10.10 already, correct?
