Annoying App Store Issue?

It's not critical or anything... But I can't seem to get rid of the "You have 6 Apps to Accept" however I've already accepted/owned them in the past.

Normally, this list of apps would just disappear after the message saying I do in fact already own them. I get that message but they still remain.

Again, it's not hurting anything...but its annoying. Anyone else with the same issue?

You can delete them and redownload from the App Store (not the install discs). That should fix the problem.

Hmmm, I tried deleting a few of them to see if it would work and I got the same error when trying to "Accept" them. Is there an order of operations here that I need to follow?

Hm, that's odd. Have you tried the usual cleaning App Store cache too? Did a quick google search but didn't seem to have found any posts relating to this problem.

I encountered the same thing. I submitted feedback to Apple (to hopefully remedy the issue).

same issue with final version of Yosemite.

I have an admin and a standard account on my mac, both pointing to the same icloud/apple id.

when I logged in as my admin account I managed to accept the apps (in my case iPhoto and iMovie)... this made me think that only admin accounts had enough privileges to provide "a unique hardware identifier from your computer.." (as mentioned in the app store).

however, when I logged back in as my standard account, the "apps to accept" showed up again...
