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 ...

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.

I had something like with with another update a few weeks ago. It is probably caused by their database records being slightly out-of-sync. I ignored it for a couple days, and it went away.

iPhoto and Aperture are not supported any more and have been removed from the app store. From wikipedia (here): On April 8, 2015, Apple released OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, which includes the new Photos app. iPhoto and Aperture were discontinued and removed from the Mac App Store. The successor app Photos was just released – on the corresponding page at ...

Reinstalling is a very easy process on OS X Apps. Delete the .app from the Applications folder and download it again. Preferences and data are usually stored in the Library-Folder of your System or User and are therefor left untouched when deleting the .app file.

I had this problem. The issue was I had two copies of Xcode. I had recently upgraded to a new drive and had the old one mounted to copy things over. Xcode in /Applications was updated, but the one in /Volumes/OldDrive/Applications was not. After unmounting the old drive and relaunching App Store the update went away. To look for other versions of Xcode, ...

So I eventually succeeded in installing Xcode. Here's what I ended up doing: I signed out of the App Store using Store --> Sign Out. I reboot the machine and held Command + R to enter the disk utility. I ran the disk verification utilities and made sure everything came out ok. After restarting the machine again I was able to install xcode. No idea if ...

Have you purchased the iPhoto? If yes, you should see it in App Store > Purchases tab. EDIT: The problem was: Clicking on "Update" button didn't update application. Solution: Delete and redownload application.

If for some reason an update appears to be stuck, even after following user24601's advice, then the next thing to try would be to download & run the standalone OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Combo Update which contains all updates since 10.10.0 & usually will bring things back into line.

If you are running Yosemite, then you can enable Family Sharing so that others can download the same app purchased by you.

In the Updates section of the App Store, if the 10.10.3 update is fully downloaded, the "Update" button next to it should be replaced by a "Restart" button. Click it, then click "Restart" on the notification that'll come up in the upper right of the screen, and then a restart will happen and the update will be installed.

I found that I had to delete all instances of "Install OSX Yosemite", which I had renamed to "Install OSX Yosemite_10.10.1" from /Applications/ and eject my old USB key, which was labeeled "Install OSX Yosemite_10.10.1" before my computer would download the latest (10.10.2) installer. Just FWIW, might be worth a try

That OS X asks for the old apple id is probably because you didn't do a clean install. You could make a backup of all your data with time machine and start your mac in recovery mode (press cmd+r) on startup. Here you can erease the hard drive and install os x again.

It won't 'forget' the old ID. Those previous apps were purchased on that ID & are only licensed to that ID. The only way round is to either use that ID for those apps, or to wipe the machine & start over, repurchasing as necessary. For corporate use, it would be far better to not purchase through the App Store, but to buy multi-seat licenses ...

First: keep your apple-id in one “Country Store”. Don’t change the country of your apple-id. Apple will screw it up, throw away your purchases or something of the kind. You can move an apple-id to a new country store (and back again), but it seems like an afterthought from Apple. You will only be able to see/access your purchases from the country store ...

I would enter the first 60 letters of the address field in question to get the computer to accept things. Then you could use your postal website (or local postmaster) to determine if your address has a suitable official abbreviation to make it both correct and amenable to the field limits Apple has. You can also always contact Apple Support to get ...
