Mine would always freeze when trying to open it, I tried killing the processes, signing out through iTunes, restarting, and nothing worked. I ended up updating the OS and iTunes through terminal and once I restarted the app store worked again! From terminal, typing softwareupdate -l will give you the available updates. Then you can install them doing ...

Looking at the install.log you pasted, one line jumped out at me: Jul 6 10:46:49 Olly.local installd[661]: preinstall: perl: posix_spawn: /usr/bin/perl5.18: Exec format error I think that error says that the installer tried to run the preinstall script using the system Perl, but that the system Perl could not even be executed. Could you please run the ...

What worked for me was to go to Store>Sign Out Once I was signed out, I was able to sign back in and purchase/install apps correctly. Not sure why this happened, but it fixed it for me.

Check your versions of Pages, Numbers & Keynote & make sure they're not updating in the background [look at Launchpad for the telltale thermometer] - mine updated to x.5.3 when I first tried updating to 10.10.4 & I had to wait until they were finished before the OS update would run. If they are up to date, or at least not currently updating, ...

Try deleting the app and reinstalling from your purchased apps list.

No, in the current version and previous versions it will require the password to update, however I believe the version to be released in the fall removes this requirement. You can however fix this by enabling automatic update.

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 ...

You have a couple of options that I can see: You can create a second Apple ID for the "purchase" (and any other free apps you want). All you need is another email address to link the second account to. Apple generally recommends using a single Apple ID for both iCloud and App Store, but it's not required, and since all you're "buying" is a free upgrade, it ...

There isn't an app out there which really deletes all of the files related to a certain app. To be completely sure, you have to do it by hand. Open up the Terminal Type in sudo find / -iname "*YOURAPPNAME*" -print > ~/Desktop/uninstall.txt Open the uninstall.txt file at your Desktop and look at the content Now go through, line by line, and when ...

You can delete that kind of apps from your finder in the application folder. Also there could be apps that don't display in launchpad at all. If we are talking about some software, recently i found new app App Uninstaller It shows every app, that is installed on my Mac and show remains of previously deleted (not completely) apps.

It's not a question of licensing, it's that the architecture of the Mac & an iDevice are totally different. The Mac runs on an Intel processor, OS X is based on a unix kernel. iDevices run on an ARM processor, iOS is [actually idk, but proprietary] (All iDevices run on the same 'family' of processors, so that is why if you purchase an iApp, you can use ...

TripMode was made specifically for this purpose, and even turns on automatically when connected to designated cell hotspots.

You wouldn't have to buy a separate license, if you are a part of developer team on provisioning portal. Since you have a admin role, the certificates, devices and identifiers section should be visible to you. If you are not able to see them, probably the team agent has not yet accepted the latest terms and conditions released by Apple, with the new iOS and ...

No, there is a difference between download and install. Download is to get the files from the Internet, and install is applying the downloaded data. However on most OS installations, an internet connection is recommended (Sometimes necessary). Sometimes, the installation goes wrong and in that fact, you might need Internet Recovery to fix it.

After struggling with the error message of "updates for other accounts", I found a solution to all of it. The apple forums offered the solution through the debug option. Type defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true into terminal and a combination of Cache Buster, Clear Cookies and Reset App did the trick. After that, the apps were ...

If you're on a family plan, make sure that another user is signed out before you try to sign in. I tried to sign in several times and it wasn't working until I realized that a different user was still logged in. Logged out of that account and signed in with mine. Afterwards, it worked fine.

I know this is a fringe case. I can report that as of Summer of 2015, buying an app for a newer OS version from an older version is not possible. I solved the issue by installing 10.10 on a different partition, and bought the app from there.
