    Hi,

    For some weird reason I can't connect to app store or update software.

    When I click on the option nothing happens at all, I've tried updating from the Software Update icon in system preferences and the pull down menu...nothing happens.

    Any help??

    Cheers!

    Find the App Store application and double click on it.

    Log into the App Store and go to the "Updates" tab on the top of the application. You should see the updates there.

    Do you have a time machine backup or clone where you can check for the App Store application from an earlier time?

    If you don't have a TM backup, you may have to consider a re-install of OSX. There are several ways to do this without losing your data:
