    I have a few issues that I am unable to resolve.
    I have been on google and the apple discussion forums and even contacted apple.

    Issue #1 Mac App Store;
    I cannot get it to stop alerting me that the same apps I just updated still show up under updates.

    Issue #2 notification Center;
    When I click on it, I can't clear it.
    It seems frozen

    Issue #1 = fix might be go into /YourHardDrive/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/ and find the file om.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist. Move that to your Trash can (but don't delete it just yet) and then reopen the Mac App store. See if that helps.

    Notifications: This is controlled by System Preferences->Notifications. Check that to see if one is set to always show. Plus check the Calendar section to see if they are allowed showing. Good Luck.

    Issue #1 does not work
    I moved the plist file to trash and reopened mac store and it still does the same thing.
    I even emptied trash and restarted my MacBook
    To try and still nothing.

    Issue #2 nothing either

    ----------

    I think the best thing would be to do a fresh install of mavericks.

    I would prefer to solve both issues without resorting to a fresh install

    For #1 uninstalling the application and installing it again from the MAS might solve the issue. For #2, I have no clue.

    Even if I delete those apps.
    The Mac App Store shows them that they are still installed

    I just checked I do not have multiple copies of any of those apps

    I had a similar problem; I contacted the tech support people at the MAS via email and had them reset downloads and the problem went away.
