    Ok, having the following problem...

    • Went into iTunes, and into Applications.
    • Hit "Check for Updates"
    • iTunes tells me there are currently updates available for some of my installed apps, and the sidebar shows (4) available.
    • I click ok (or get updates, or whatever the confirm button is) and it then goes to the page that USUALLY lists the available updates, and the page is empty, listing "No Updates Available"

    Tried ringing Apple Support, they had no clue what I was talking about.

    Anyone had this issue, and if so, how did you get around it?

    For the record, I'm running the latest versions of iTunes and the iPhone firmware.

    Cheers in advance

    I had that issue for a while.
    It seems to have gone away now.
    Not sure if it was an iTunes update or what.
    Annoying to say the least.

    Do you use more than one iTunes account?

    I get this but attributed it to the fact that I have both a US and a UK iTunes account.

    I do, yes, but I'm 100% sure that the account I'm currently logged into is the one that the to-be-updated apps (Enigmo, Grocery Gadget, FS5 Touch Hockey and Stanza) were bought on... :(

    Plus, I've had the two accounts for ages, and the problems only started yesterday
