I just upgraded to OS X Yosemite, but now, when I try to open iPhoto, I get a "In order to open iPhoto, you need to update to the latest version."

So then I click on "Search App Store" which gives me the message "Item not available. The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store." ???

How can I just go back to my last operating system and forget Yosemite? Help!!!

In the App store, go to the Purchases tab. You'll find iPhoto in there.

What happens to my old iPhoto library?

But what happens to my existing iPhoto library then?

The old library should be usable with the newer version of iPhoto.

In my own case, I got the same alert that you did.
IIRC, I was UNable to simply open the App Store app and upgrade to the newer version of iPhoto -- UNTIL I deleted the OLD version first (from the applications folder). Then I was able to download a new copy (version 9.6.1).

Suggestion:
If you experience similar problems, I would suggest making a copy of the old (existing) version of iPhoto someplace else on your drive before you delete it from the applications folder.
