    My itunes applications page says I have 5 updates available, but when I click that link, it says "(my user ID) has no updates currently available." I can update from my iphone and am running the latest versions of snow leopard, itunes, and the iphone software. Thoughts?

    I have had this happen
    If I recall, a restart solved it for me

    If only it were that easy! I've restarted the phone and mac several times each to no avail.

    It's been several days, which is a lot longer than I've ever seen it take before. I can be patient if I know it's going to resolve itself eventually.

    Several days is beyond being patient.

    Try downloading a new app you don't need to see if that resets things.

    No good. Nothing has made any difference so far. :-/

    Well, the only other ideas I have are to logout of the app store and log back in and see if that fixes it. Otherwise, you could delete the offending apps and redownload them. If that doesn't fix it, you either live with it and see if it eventually fixes itself, or you restore.

    have logged out and in again, to no avail.

    I can't delete the offending apps without deleting all of them because I don't know which ones they are (since my only indication that there are updates is the message at the bottom of the applications screen in itunes).

    Restoring might or might not help, since the problem is with itunes. And I don't dare delete my itunes preferences or reinstall itunes because I have way too much customized, and if I lost it over this I'd flip.

    So I guess I wait it out and see if the next itunes update changes anything... :mad:
