This is really interesting. Yesterday i bought myself a brand new iMac with 1TB harddisc capacity for iOS development. This was my first experience with Mac OS X. So i plugged the cable and press the power button. Setup done and computer is ready to use. So i opened App Store and started downloading XCode. It says that i need 2.58GB free space on my hard ...

Go with Steam. Play on Windows if you want to. Faster update.

Steam. With steam, you'll be able to play it on Windows too, should you ever have the need. The same can't be said for the MAS, which only offers the Mac version. It's a nice bit of future-proofing, incase you ever get a Windows PC in the future. To put it simply, you get more for your money.

If you want to use an existing Apple ID, you're out of luck. You need a card to be entered and accepted, so you'll have to pay for one or get a friend to trust you to add it and then remove it immediately after confirming your account for the store. You probably also can pay a US bank to provide you with an account and debit card, but that can be more ...

I just change my shell using chsh -s /bin/bash $USER, apply the updates and finally change my shell back to ZSH.

The MAS receipt is designed just so you can't do that - otherwise you could hand the app to all your friends without them having to buy it ;-) Did you try telling App Store to "Ignore Updates" - right click in empty space to the right of the App name… though I've heard reports this is no longer working in Yosemite; I've no updates to test on right now.

Sometimes, you just need to sign out and sign in again to the Appstore. Worked for me.

I finally figured it out. In Keychain Access, I selected Preferences, then Reset my Default Keychain. After doing that, I restarted AppStore and it was working normally.

Try resetting your computer's Date and Time, the settings are located in Apple Menu > System Preferences > Data & Time. If the "Set date and time automatically:" checkbox is enabled, disable it, and manually set the time and date correctly. Try loading the App Store again.

The normal procedure is to add a valid billing source and buy something that uses all the credit and then do the switch. If for whatever reason, you can't add a valid credit/debit card for your current region, then asking for help from iTunes store support is the best bet. https://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ You could even ask them if there is ...

Since the Apple App Store has standardized price points ($0.99, $1.99, etc), you won't find an app that is $0.80 unfortunately. There isn't any way to search by price in the app store, but services such as AppAdvice.com and others can help a bit. My recommendation is that you choose an app that you want, figure out the price, including tax. Ask a friend ...

Same problem. Tried all the solutions mentioned in this and other threads. Opened iTunes on a whim and saw the system could not authenticate the various CERTS associated with Apple. Looked that up. Found that the solution was to purge your current key store and then reboot. Voila. In my case, I'm assuming my keystore "corruption" happened because of a ...

"macotavio@mac.com" does not appear to be a "generic example email", but rather the Apple ID used to purchase the copy of Final Cut Pro that is installed on your Mac. The purchase is tied to this Apple ID (which explains why you cannot change it) and in order to update the installation, you will have to provide the correct password for this Apple ID.

If you've created a new Apple ID, you need to have a valid OS X purchase under this new Apple ID? Otherwise you might have to use—at least for the install—the Apple ID you used to buy OS X.

System Preferences → App Store → uncheck options

You can't disable automatic updates for individual apps. The only options are to have automatic updates, or to not have automatic updates. It is not possible for granular control currently. You can provide feedback to Apple here: https://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

The problem appears to have been my copy of the installer that I had stashed away in a folder in my home directory, even though I'd originally made it by keeping a copy of the installer in /Applications (it was even owned by my user account instead of root!). Once I removed that installer, the Mac App Store was happy to start the download for a new one.

I use pushbullet to get the iOS notification show up to Mac. This way, you can still use 30/30 app on your iPhone, but get notification on your Mac.

In my particular case, the only way to fix it was to turn off my company's VPN. Details: I was trying to install XCode 6.3.1 on OS X Yosemite v.10.10.3. All of the previous solutions didn't work, although the suggestion to debug the installation process through App Store and to tail the log files were crucial to find the root cause. Steps to find the root ...

From Apple Support Communities Just called Apple support... here is the official fix. Move all files from /Library/QuickTime/ to a temp older on desktop Open AppStore and download/install update Reboot Copy any missing files from temp folder on desktop to /Library/QuickTime. For me this was 1 file, AppleMPEG2Codec.component.

I was wondering why softwareupdated was always running in activity monitor as well. I believe i fixed my issue by turning off "Check for new software updates automatically" in iTunes, in Advanced Preferences. (1) iTunes (2) Preferences (3) Advanced Preferences (4) unselect: "Check for new software updates automatically" So far, that has solved the ...

Update in 04/2015 how to do this in Yosemite Hi folks, I was quite happy to find this post. Thanks a lot. In my case I paid for an App and read that an upcoming update would feature Ads which is a NoGo for me when I have paid money for it. So I decided to stick with the old version without Ads. But unfortunately it didn't work for me in Yosemite. After ...

I had that issue with the 2.0.1 update as well. What finally worked for me (see this Apple Support Discussion) was downloading Pacifist and using it to install the update that I downloaded manually from the Apple Support site here. All you have to do is choose "Open Package" in Pacifist, select the Pro Video update disk image, and install the top-level item ...

I've seen this happen to a few people - it seems that the system is thinking in doublespeak - believing 2 things at the same time; that you need 10.10.3 but that you already have 10.10.3 Most times, this is resolved by downloading & installing the 10.10.3 combo updater, directly from Apple's Knowledge Base - https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1804 This ...

Try opening Terminal and entering the following command to enable the App Store Debug menu: defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool YES Then, quit the App Store (if it was already open), and relaunch it. You should see a new menu after the Help menu labeled Debug. Open it and select Reset Application. If that doesn't solve your problem, ...
