You could boot to the Recovery HD or internet recovery and install OS X to a usb drive. Then download and install Yosemite. You are really in the same situation as this user, hence the identical answer I have posted here: How do I install OS X Yosemite without a working Mac App Store application?

Try to clear App Store cache, reboot your Mac and check the App Store. To clear the cache, open Terminal and copy and paste following command: open $TMPDIR../C/ In the Finder window that will open, locate the com.apple.appstore folder and move it to Trash. Reboot your Mac.

update It's was just a glitch in the App store, the applications had been installed, it seems one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.

You can log out from the App Store after you click "Account" at the Quick Links sidebar (inside the "Feature" Tap) You can log out and change the Apple ID inside the OS X settings You need to log in with the Apple ID you bought the apps with You can delete certain apps and keep the files. Like iPhoto keeps its Library inside the Pictures folder ...

To delete an active download for Yosemite in the Trash can, I had to switch to Safe Mode (Hold down SHIFT Key while booting) before I could delete it. HTH

I got this same error today and found out that iMovie and iPhoto are connected to my original @me.com apple id (from years ago). I now use a different email with app store. You have to log out of the app store with your current apple id and log in with your original (older) id (assuming that you have/had one).

The log of your updates are available in: ~/Library/Application Support/App Store/updatejournal.plist The simple solution is to clear the update logs by deleting the mentioned file.

sudo find /private/var/ -name '*com.apple.appstore*.pkg' What's your output? If there is anything at all, you've found an explanation.

To download with normal speed again, you can do the following trick: (These first two steps weren't necessary for me and it worked for me without doing that.) First open System Preferences → Network → Advanced and choose the tab "DNS" and add another DNS-Server by clicking on the +. A list of free DNS-Servers can be found at about.com. Now we choose a ...

You don't need to. Apple is regarding the last GM and last public beta as the final release of Yosemite and not offering an update path. Instead, wait for 10.10.1 and the Mac App Store will include this as an update path putting you back on track.


0

As you have the GM, I assume you have access to the Developer Panel. If so, download the final release they publish there, as the App Store thinks you've already got it installed. You need to run the newly downloaded install, maybe from the OS, maybe from boot.

You have to download 5GB ;) However a clean install can be a great idea after a Dev Preview...

Close App Store In the Finder search for: com.apple.appstore delete the whole com.apple.appstore folder empty trash restart the App Store

First things I'd do would be Run Disk Utility, check permissions & verify/repair disk Grab the combo updater for 10.9.5 & re-install http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1760

Yes, the same principle applies. For Apple, it is a purchased product, though in one case the price was $0. So it's not transferable from account to account. As a developer, I know one normal case that is: the app is free for one day. Then the app turns paid. If a user could transfer to another account, then it would be a problem for the dev since it may be ...

I have such problems as well. Mac App Store in China is very horrible, and I failed to download it from App Store trying for a whole day. So I download from torrent sites. You can search for Yosemite with any kind of torrent search engine. Carefully read the title so that you do not download the wrong version (like the developer preview or beta version). ...

It's on usenet already & no doubt torrents [though I don't go there] The Release build is 14A389 the release version of Yosemite is build 14A389—the last developer seed was build 14a388, also known as GMC3. The last public beta version was build 14A388b. That makes the MAS release newer than all other released builds Up to you, of course, to decide ...

No, I had a look and it seems that there is no way without using the app store. You will either have to go through some third party stuff or get an active internet connection on your mac.

All the coverage I've seen says to run what you have and 10.10.1 will convert all pre-release versions of OS X - including the latest GM candidates to the full production version. You are free of course to go through the work to download the free version of the installer and see if it runs on your specific version of OS X but without knowing your exact ...

Best way to do this is to enable the debug menu for the app store. Do this: 1) open terminal 2) run this command from terminal: defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true 3) restart the app store. 4) go to the the app store debug menu and reveal the download folder. You can delete the whole thing from finder. 5) log out and back in to ...

Did you try the activity monitor thats built in to OS X? Use spot light to find/open activity monitor and click on the network button near the bottom and it will display the data sent and received since the last restart.

Use the secret key. on your app store, hover the grey button, then push the "option" key on your keyboard.

Sadly it didn't go through. I left it on download while changed in App Store preferences not to install system file etc.. Download completed, installation proceeded on itself again and installer stuck at 9 min remaining showing in App Store purchases. Like before, the X icon in Applications folder is 168KB only. I found some stuff downloaded at a ...

Just upgrade as normal. Then if you need to do a clean install, use the recovery partition. Or is there something else you are after?

Mavericks is free and doesn't cost anything to update to. If you are satisfied with staying at Mountain Lion you can ignore any update for server.app version 3 by opening terminal.app and running.. softwareupdate --list to get the full name of the update and then run.. softwareupdate --ignore <label> If you due end up running the free upgrade to ...

I was having the same problem with the Xcode 6.0.1 update continually showing up in the App Store. I applied the same update several times during my troubleshooting, even though during the process I kept deleting Xcode from my hard drive, I have no need for it any more. I didn't have more than one copy of Xcode on my drive, one possible reason for this ...

Go to the App Store app. Click purchases. Click Pause on the app. It should pause. Now search for the app again and it should say "Install". If you go to the purchases tap you should see that it restarted.

Technically that person owns those apps. You can remove the app, which removes the MAS receipt, and re download it while your signed into the app store. Then it will be associated to your apple ID and owned by you.

As long as you don't have any user data stored within the xCode.app file structure, just delete the xCode app. Then re-download it from the AppStore using your new AppleID.

This is a dumb one, but I found that the reason I was receiving this message was that my hard drive was full. So I cleared up some space and it installed just fine. Facepalm. Truth be told, the App Store should have better messaging around this. It's not an unknown error, we totally know what it is. Be forthright, App Store, come on.

This works exactly as one would expect it to: When you share from an iOS 8 device, purchases made with the Apple ID used on that device for purchases (iTunes, iBooks, AppStore) — even if that ID is different from the one used for iCloud (Photos, Mail, Contacts, Calendars) on that device — will be shared.

I just had this problem, poked around online, and solved it by resetting the PRAM. It's generally my second go-to solution if rebooting doesn't fix it. Here's the Mavericks PRAM reset instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH14222?viewlocale=en_US

Try deleting the Xcode.app from your /Applications folder and replacing it with the Xcode.app from inside the dmg that you downloaded. Once you have replaced the Xcode application try to open it and it should work. You usually can't run packages or applications from inside of a mounted dmg. It is recommended to copy what you need from the dmg and then ...

I've had this happen with other apps in the past and what works for me is to: kick off a Time Machine backup (or equivalent) delete the app using Launchpad (or deleting from from /Applications) restart The restart is probably not needed in the vast majority of cases, but it ensures that no files from the app are still open from any process still running. ...

For those of you with an Apple Mac Developer program membership, you can download a copy of Snow Leopard Server from the developer download center. The downloaded version doesn't include a serial key however.

You can try the following commands to fix that. Open the Terminal application (located in /Applications/Utilities) Type in the following commands: sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.storeagent.plist Type in your password when prompted, (your password won't appear when you type it, this is ...

Step 1: Automator tasks Create an Automator task, and save it (take note of the task file location). You probably want a couple Automator tasks in this case (one to mute and one to unmute).

I was able to solve this, but I still don't know what caused it. Iteratively: Watch for a hung sh job. Run the command in a terminal. Kill the parent of the hung job with kill -9. Return to 1 until no more hung jobs appear.

Go to your Purchases in the Mac App Store. There you should see it.

The first time you start up the system and log into the OS, you'll be prompted to create an Apple ID or connect to an existing one. That will register the OS as 'purchased' and enable you to do Internet Recovery or download the OS from the App Store. If you're using a MacBook with the same OS as currently available on the new MBP you wish to buy, it may be ...
