This question already has an answer here:

iTunes software update keeps appearing in the app store even after several updates of the same. Has anyone faced a similar issue? When I try to update it, the download begins and installs and again reappears on the App store. Moreover this is happening in my new mac. I'm unable to find the root cause for this issue.
