I can open the iTunes app and it seems to be working as normal, but whenever I try to sign in it gives me two error messages, one after the other.

  • first - "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occurred(-50)."
  • second presents immediately after dismissing the first - “ We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occurred (-9836).”

I'm using an early 2008 Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 that is fully updated but not upgrades past Lion.

Is this a server issue or something with my Mac?

My answer: Since you mention that you are running Mac OS X Lion (10.7.5), the issue could be that your operating system is no longer supported. Try to update your Mac and see if it works.

My experience: I had a similar issue on Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9). Once I updated to Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11), the issue went away.

    iTunes still works on Mavericks at least. I’d be a little surprised if Lion was cut off, given that stuff like the App Store still works. – Wowfunhappy Jul 18 at 22:25
  • @Wowfunhappy Interesting. Mavericks didn’t quite work on my machine. I’ll edit my answer. – Macintosh Fan Jul 18 at 23:23
