    Today my iTunes keeps giving me this message when hitting "update all". A similar message pops up when trying to update the apps individually.

    What should I do?

    Thanks!

    Do you also have a US Account (to use promo codes?) or requested a refund on an app?

    If so find which one is the culprit, update them all one by one. it sucks, I know.

    this happens to me as well on my iphone and itunes. It is because you have homesharing apps on there. Gonna have to update 1by1 and can no longer update at all on your iphone (have to sync with itunes to update)

    but I haven't activated any new features or the like?!

    I asked for help at iTunes support, and they said they will be looking into it as they can't figure out whats causing it.

    I never had any refunds, never requested any and never jailbroke my device, and never shared anything. I have done absolutely nothing out of the ordinary - it just started out of the blue.


    I have now had success with updating the applications via my iPhone... works fine : /?

    I prefer doing it in iTunes - so I hope apple fixes this for me.
