    I've received a MBP from my employer which is running 10.9.2. A few /Applications are not installed, I'd like to install iPhoto. However it's doesn't show up in software update. Is there a blacklist or whitelist plist somewhere on the box which defines what's allowed / not allowed to be installed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Open the App Store app and look in your purchases section to see if it is listed there and you should be able to download.

    Thanks Weaselboy, I tried your suggestion and got the messages in the attachments. I've got a few other Macs running Yosemite, might this be the cause of the messages, ie, the App Store "knows" what I'm running?

    Upgrading to Yosemite isn't possible at this time due to some production software not being QA'ed against it yet.

    Yes exactly. You will need to DL it from the App Store app on the Mavericks machine.

    There was an error in the App Store. Please try again later. (null)

    Probably not. As the App Store dialogue said, there was an error.

    Sometimes in the parentheses there'll be an error code. In this case there's not (null) so do … please try again later :)

    I, too, have Mavericks and Yosemite, and for me the App Store in Yosemite will have seen iPhoto 9.x on connected disks at least once.

    On Mavericks I see the first dialogue but not the second. iPhoto 9.5.1 downloaded and installed without error a few minutes ago.

    UK here.
