Hey. I've got an issue where my the AppStore on my Mac is stuck updating apps. It tries to update but are just stuck on the update and never installs. I'm on Big Sur 11.1, MacBook Pro 16.

I've tried to restart my computer, logged in and out of AppStore and tried to find solutions on the internet but nothing seems to work.

Anyone with same experience or have an idea for a solution?

Thank you!!

I have the same issue. Started last week all of a sudden on 11.1

Updating to 11.2 haven't solved it..

I'm on 11.2.3 and the installer has been trying to install Pages for the last several days without any progress.

I'm thinking of killing the installer process. It's chewing up a lot of CPU and causing the machine's response to slow.

Edit: A reboot fixed it.
