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?
Had the same problem. Solved by going to the "Purchased" tab on the App Store, looking for software that needed to be updated (xCode, iMovie, GarageBand, Numbers, Pages, Keynote) and clicking there on "Update". I also started downloading a new App. Some 15 secs later they appeared on the "Updates" tab as well. Including a "Software Update" that contains a new iTunes, what I was looking for actually.
Same issue here. Count 6...

After this, down to 5, but still wrong..
The App Store was showing a badge count of 4 items to be updated on my Mac (macOS 10.12.1) but nothing was displayed in the 'Update' tab.
I suspected that Pages, Numbers & Keynote apps probably had updates waiting given that their iOS versions were updated earlier today, so I located those apps on the 'Featured' page of the App Store and saw that they had an 'update' button. So I updated all three from there.
After that, I went back to the 'Update' page of the App Store and found that iTunes 12.5.2 updated was now displayed and could be updated.
Badge count is now zero!
This happened to me today. When my Mac eventually prompted me to install updates with the reminder notification, I was able to install the 6 updates. They included Garage Band and other Apple apps along with XCode. Then, later I got an iTunes update. But still all my app update history is gone and that tab is blank.
