I have a notification that there are updates to install, so as usual, I would like to review them beforehand.

However, when I open the App Store app, I only see the following: App Store with top buttons missing

Normally it would say something like "Featured", "Installed", "Updates" and the such. However, now it's all gone! How can I re-enable the display of the buttons?

EDIT: It should normally look like this (notice the buttons in the top bar): Correct App store display

  • Maybe they're applications that were installed using a different Apple ID? – fsb Jun 24 at 21:44
  • No, I mean the entire upper panel of buttons/sections of the App Store are gone. – Daniel Gray Jun 25 at 0:16
  • Which version of macOS are you on? - this doesn't look like Mojave, but must be some older version? – jksoegaard Jun 25 at 8:34
  • I'm on High Sierra... I don't want to upgrade, I want to stay put. I just want the App Store buttons to appear again. – Daniel Gray Jun 25 at 14:33
  • What if anything have you done to resolve it? Quit and relaunched? Rebooted? Deleted some preference files? Etc. – samh Jun 25 at 16:07
