You have the game 'Galaxy on Fire 2' installed. Remove it from all drives, even external drives. Empty trash, reboot, and go back to app store update, the update will then stop showing.

I run Yosemite 10.10.5. After I deleted an app (move to trash..) it first still appeared in the update list but after updating all other apps individually and after AppStore searched for updates again, it was removed from the list.

Whilst apps on the top charts list are selected algorithmically, all the apps on the featured tab are hand-picked. There's no algorithm that directly chooses apps to be shown on the featured tab.

I'd go for the standard "first fix" tasks. Disk Utility, Repair Permissions, then Verify & if necessary Repair Disk. Apply or re-apply the latest combo updater - 10.10.5 here. This can fix many odd issues.

I just got this working by overriding the useragent string. (tl;dr: There is a firefox plugin called User Agent Overrider which does what is detailed below. My reasons for not using the plugin is, that I find the below easy enough to do manually and don't do it often enough to warrant the need for a whole plugin in my already overladen-with-plugins ...

If the desired Mac is slow, you can always use another Mac to do the download of the OS X installer. Make a guest account on that Mac and sign in with your AppleID since you'll want to shift off your boss's password and get everything under an ID you control. Go to the App Store and download the installer - but don't run it. Copy that installer application ...

Update incrementally to Beta 3. And you will get immediate update to 7th beta (So they've done combo update from 3 to 7 - nothing more is known) This is what is shown in App Store on Beta 3. After update:

You can't - Apple hasn't released a combo updater (yet) and we're at β7 build 15A263e. You can duplicate this radar if you find it a waste of time. http://www.openradar.me/22307567 The title isn't strictly correct - all installers so far are incremental. So, your best bet is to get decent connection to the network and softwareupdate --download --all and ...

I updated from 10.10.4 and had the very same problem. Even after rebooting this loop did not end. I solved it by installing the update from the command line with this command: softwareupdate -i -a In order to issue this command, open the Terminal application and enter the command. The tool downloaded the software update package and installed it. At the end ...

You have two options if your company has no prior VPP set up. Choose a different email string to register. Log in to the email you wish to use at http://appleid.apple.com and change the ID/email to get off the one you wish to use for VPP. The VPP portal does things to the AppleID you enroll that isn't handled/allowed for pre-existing accounts. Unless ...

The Combo update is needed if you did not update to 10.10.4. If you are running 10.10.4 you need only the (non-combo) update which is 1 gb rather than 2.

Go to Settings-> iTunes & App Store then tap your UK Apple ID and tap "Log Out". Then just sign in with your German Apple ID. After you've downloaded the app, you should be able to switch back to the UK Apple ID in the same way without anything being affected.

Yep, just go to the Updates pane on the bottom right of the Mac App Store and then click "Update" on the right of iMovie.

YMMV. Every once in a while when the transferred app is opened for the first time, it will need to validate the Apple ID which the app was downloaded with, so most of the time it will work, but sometimes it won't.

I couldn't get the AppStore to install the update, but I downloaded the combo update from Apple. It's much larger (2GB instead of 800MB), but can be installed without the AppStore.

I just had this issue recently i wanted to download a few apps from my previous country... and the apple consultants emailed me saying that I can just go ahead and re-purchase the apps and he'll redeem those (provided you hv proof of receipts). It's a hassle & yes Apple should hv just allow us to merge apps no matter where on earth we buy the apps ...

I have solved this by using CCleaner (free trial) to clear temporary files. Worked for me after relaunching the Mac App Store.
