- Ghost Updates on Mac 7 answers
My updates badge shows 6 (also in the menu), but the section in the updates tab seems to be collapsed (top separator line is thicker, like two lines) and not showing the available apps. I'm currently running macOS 10.12.1 (Mac App Store 2.2) and first noticed this problem today. The other tabs are behaving normally and this badge has changed from 5 to 6 updates today. I've tried restarting my computer, but the problem persists. Any ideas for fixing this?
