    I have tried everything! NOTHING WORKS!

    Solution 1: Log your Apple ID out of iTunes, and then log back in. Authorize both iTunes accounts.

    Solution 2: Delete the iPhone app that has been downloaded from different Apple account (account used for building app or downloading app)

    Solution 3 : If you purchasing apps with 2 unique Apple/iTunes IDs
    First de-authorize and signed out of all iTunes on all your Mac computers.
    Log out of iTunes on iOS devices.
    Now sign in to iTunes on 1 Mac and 1 iPhone with main iTunes login.
    Authorize Mac with main iTunes account login.
    Then authorize for any other Apple accounts you may have.
    Finally sync Device.

    Solution 4:Instead of syncing just make some changes in any videos or photos and press Apply.
    That’s all. iTunes will sync normally. Don’t press sync.

    Solution 5: Tick the check box”Manually manage Music & Videos”.
    Then click Apply, and sync button. ( it will return to usual authorisation error. don’t worry.)
    Again unchecked the box for manually manage music, click apply and sync.

    Solution 6: De-authorize your computer and uninstall iTunes
    Clean your computer with CCleaner.
    Reinstall new version of iTunes and authorize your computer again.

    Solution 7:
    Open iTunes on the computer
    From the menu bar select Account > Authorizations > Authorize This Computer
    Enter password for your Apple ID, done.

    I solved this problem yesterday.
    You probably have apps downloaded from different Apple IDs. Do you have more than one Apple ID?
    For example, I had one main Apple ID, but I also created a few alternative ones, so I could DL apps that are only available in certain countries. e.g. You can't DL the NBC Sports app in the UK App Store, because NBC is a US broadcaster. You can download it from the US App Store.
    You need to log in to each of your apple IDs and authorise each one of them to be used on your computer. Alternatively, you can probably just delete the apps downloaded via your other Apple IDs.

    This did the trick for me.
