Moved my iTunes Library to an external USB HD and all seemed to be fine. However in iTunes when I select Apps/Library the Apps don’t show up. I bought/got a couple to test and they are there but all my older Apps don’t show up. All Apps/files including the new ones are correctly located in the USB/iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications folder. How can I get iTunes to recognize all my Apps?

Main drive, and open apps are fine. Hope it works for you.
I ran Disk Utility/First Aid on the main HD and the USB (with Library) and still the same. Is tis the correct way to do it? I didn't see a repair permissions option and just ran First Aid.

Are you on Sierra? If so, you will need to find another way, as Apple took Repair Permissions off it. Sorry I cannot be of further help, since I am still on Snow Leopard.

Looks like Repair Permissions has been removed and Apple says it is no longer needed.

That's probably true IF you don't move things away from where Apple wants you to put them (main drive).

I seem to recall a thread where someone offered a workaround for permissions on Sierra - might be worth a search.
