I had the same exact problems with my 2010 iMac 21.5 running 10.10.4. Open up Activity Monitor and have it run behind you to check memory pressures and CPU usage.

The app store depends on network responses and if the server is overloaded (as it is when big updates roll out), you can get caught waiting. If you're not in a rush - set a timer and try again in 8 and then again in 24 hours. If you are in a rush, force quit the App Store app and open terminal app. You can run softwareupdate -ai and let that window wait ...

In my case it helped to remove the application state of the Finder. This command will move the state file to your desktop: mv -r ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/com.apple.finder.savedState ~/Desktop/com.apple.finder.savedState Then restart the Finder process with killall Finder. If that was successful and you don't need anything from the old state ...

On page two of that discussion, one of the posters stated the following: Here is what finally fixed for me.
