I wasn't able to update from 10.13.1 to 10.13.3 but what I was able to do was I installed on a new vm using the latest disk image from the app store. That should contain 10.13.3 update builtin. However the new problem I have is that the supplemental update does not work.

Most probably a misstep in the instructions? You're not exactly going in depth with details here...

There's an "About this Mac", right below the Apple-logo...

Does not work? What does that mean? Can you elaborate? Apple has not been too revealing about the fixes, but the supplemental update is about a Telugu character. It's a 40 MB update that most probably touches in areas of the fonts management. How do you know it's not working? I tried it and it works just fine over here...

 Edit: OSX version 10.3.3: 17D47
10.3.3 with the update: 17D102

I had a similar problem like the OP.
No chance to update 10.13.x to 10.13.3. Tried all suggestions from socratis.

So I decided to install a fresh 10.13.3 VM.
After the release of the supplemental update for 10.13.3, i tried to install it,
but my system was still at OSX version 10.3.3: 17D47. After a reboot,
the update still was visible in the app store, ready for download.

So I repeated the installation 3 times, but always the same.

I could solve the problem by downloading the supplemental package directly from apple
(not via App Store).
1) Install the package
2) create a snapshot (if you are too slow with pressing F12 - so you can revert to the snapshot)
3) on reboot press F12 to go to EFI
4) Find and start the correct boot.efi as described in socrates thread

-> after the installation you should have a 10.3.3 - 17D102
