Update your billing info? :-)

Usually this happens if the credit card check fails. To fix, log into your account in iTunes and either update the credit card details or add a new one:

  • open iTunes
  • go to the iTunes store (Shift-Cmd-H)
  • click on your Apple ID at top left and select "Account"
  • Billing info should be the second line in the overview, select "Edit" at the right
