Mac AppStore hanging?

Postby ethelred » Thu Jul 19, 2012 4:30 pm

Whenever I click 'Updates' in the Mac AppStore, it hangs and starts showing the rainbow wheel/beach ball. My CRL and OCSP have always been on off, I've tried disabling Spotlight, and I've inputted in Terminal:

diskutil umount BOOTCAMP

Still nothing. I'm really worried this might affect my upgrade to OS X Lion when purchase and attempt to download it. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

If you're trying to update OS X Snow Leopard, you can't do that through the Mac App Store App.

Click on the Apple Icon (top left corner of your screen) and chose: Software Update... and, OS X Snow Leopard will automatically update itself to the version (10.6.8) you need to install OS X Lion.

Then, use the App Store App, when OS X Lion becomes available for purchase ($ 29).
