    When I click on the "purchased" tab in the app store, it's just sitting their all by itself with a button that says "DOWNLOAD". I click it, I get the spinning cycle it's doing something, and then it just stops. I've tried restarting and it doesn't change anything.

    I just deleted Mavericks from my "Purchased" section, and no when I try to download it from the App Store, it doesn't even make it's way over to the "purchased" tab.

    I'm running Snow Leopard with the most recent update and I have 11GB's of free space. Anyone know what it could be?

    Not sure if it will be the same with Snow Leopard but a lot of people had this problem, this was the solution

    You need to change the permissions for the parent folder and file in order to change anything though

    tried the above solution, it doesn't appear to work. i changed versions and such, tried pressing the "free upgrade" button then it turned into a green "install app" button. it made me log in to my account, but after that the spinning wheel on the top left corner just appeared again. It's still not on my purchases tab.

    i dont think this solution works for 10.6.8, but i'm not too sure

    I think theres a problem with the MAS at the moment because I tried downloading another version and it did the same thing.
