    I`m not being able to update some of the software that appears on the apple store updates tab, itunes, safari, etc.. I downloaded itunes from apple site and everything went fine but safari seems to be only available trough apple store , is there any known bug where apple store refuses to update yosemite software (any solution)? thanks.

    Not an answer to your question, but you can download Safari 8.0.6 installer for Yosemite directly:

    edit,when downloading safari just found a solution in apple forum:

    "This procedure will delete certain temporary and cache files used by system processes. The files are automatically generated and don't contain any of your data. Occasionally they can become corrupt and cause problems such as yours.

    Back up all data before proceeding.

    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:


    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select

    Services ▹ Reveal in Finder (or just Reveal)

    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open with a subfolder named "zz" selected. Move that subfolder to the Trash. You may be prompted for your administrator login password. Restart the computer and empty the Trash.

    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return."
