Can't update iPhoto after loading yosemite

Uploaded Yosemite and can't update iPhoto.  message is that the app was bought by another user or cancelled.  Not true.  What should I do?

How can I get a 'redeem code'?  I have the same problem.
In that case you need a redeem code for iPhoto from the App Store to be able to update.
Obviously you contact App store support - link is on the right of the App store window

  • I can't update iPhoto after installing yosemite

    i can't update or open iPhoto after installing yosemite

    Ok so here's what you gonna do. (had this problem myself today, and after some fiddling figured out what to do.)
    Find your old iPhoto with a cross through it, right-click it and select 'show package contents'. A folder will open. In that folder go to Contents>MacOS and there will be three little things there. Click on the one called 'iPhoto' and terminal will open. Leave terminal open and wait four seconds and VOILA! iPhoto opens. Leave terminal open until you are finished with iPhoto, because if you close terminal, iPhoto will close with it. THX! ENJOY! Hope it works.
    P.S.
    You can close terminal once you close iPhoto. I also suggest backing up your iPhoto library while you can.

  • I can't update iPhoto after installing OSX 10.9.2, it has the name otto@**** in the apple ID box and will not let me change it. Any thoughts?

    Hello people,
    I can't update iPhoto after installing OSX 10.9.2, it has the name [email protected]**** in the apple ID box and will not let me change it. Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, the App Store may prompt you to update "Angry Birds" or "Twitter," but the hacked app may be something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you must carry out a systematic search with Spotlight.
    1. Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    2. In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
    File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
    Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu of search criteria, initially showing Kind. From that menu, select
    Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select
    Raw Query
    as the criterion, then click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of the menu of search criteria. That's where you enter the raw search query. Click in that box and paste the text you copied earlier by pressing command-V.
    4. The search window will now show all the App Store products that are installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the apps in the Spotlight search results is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash, after quitting it if it's running. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Quit and relaunch the App Store. Test.
    If you find these instructions confusing, ask for an alternative method.

  • This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled... this comes up when I go to update Iphoto after installing Yosemite... how do I fix this?

    I have resolved this issue with the apple chat support by going to the "purchases" tab in the app store - where there was a message that I had to accept updates for the apps that wouldn't update.  Once I did this, signing in for each of them, they all updated just fine.

  • I can't update iPhoto after upgrading to Yosemite.

    When I attempt to update iPhoto I get the message, "Unable to update with this Apple ID"  "This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled."
    I did not purchase iPhoto via the App Store, it was installed on my iMac when I purchased it.  How can I get iPHoot working again?

    This error message will appear erraneously, if you skipped the update to Mavericks and iPhoto 9.5.1 and went straight from an earlier MacS X version to Yosemite, without first updating to iPhoto 9,5.1 and associating it to your AppleID.
    Try first to buy iPhoto with your AppleID, as Kappy suggested. Delete iPhoto from Applications, but don't empty the Trash, then go to the main page of the App Store and search for iPhoto. If you are lucky, it will show as free and you can buy it directly.
    If it is not showing as free, there is no help but contacting the App Store Support: Ask for a redemption code. You will need to provide a prove of purchase for your mac with iPhoto preinstalled.

  • I can't update iPhoto after upgrading to Mavericks

    I have searched everywhere for my iLife '11 disc and can't find it.  App Store says I must update iPhoto, iMovie etc, but won't accept my Apple id.  Can't talk to apple support without first agreeing to pay $60!!. Can someone tell me what to do next??

    App Store says I must update iPhoto, iMovie etc, but won't accept my Apple id.
    If your versions of iPhoto, etc have been installed using a different AppleID, then you have to ask the person who installed it to authorize the update.
    Or uninstall the current versions and buy the updatetd versions.
    If you are sure, that the versions have been accepted to your current AppleID, there may be aproblem with your AppleID. Sometimes an AppleID will be disabled for use with the AppStore for security reasons. Do you get an error message, that indicates a problem with your AppleID?

  • Can't update iPhoto after mavericks update

    Hi,
    I recently updated my iMac with the mavericks OSX update - but now I cannot update iphoto. the app store shows that is knows an update is available, but whenever I try and update - the app store asks me for a password for my apple ID - but  nothing ever happens. the spinner by the username just keeps going around and around. I have reset the password as well via the apple support pages (iforgot) but it makes no difference. I have another apple ID which I've used since for purchases (and on another mac) which doesn't have any problems at all however the app store update doesn't allow me to change the apple ID.. Any suggestions on how to get this done?
    not sure if this is actually an iphoto issue or an app store issue? thanks

    Contact App Store support. There's a link on the right hand side of the App Store Window. They're the only ones who can sort out account issues.

  • Unable to update iPhoto after installing yosemite on iMac

    recently installed yosemite OS, but cannot open iPhoto without update  and cannot find update.

    Its been like this for 2 hours...
    It may be hanging, because you are running out of storage - do you have at least 10GB of fee disk space?
    Or something is interfering with your connection to the App Store - anti virus software, a firewall. If you have any such software running, restart yor mac in Safe Mode and try reinstalling in this mode:  Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode
    If that does not help either, ask in the App Store forum.

  • Can't open iPhoto after downloading yosemite app

    I have an IMac, and have recently downloaded the Yosemite app. Was not able to open iPhoto so I downloaded the iPhoto app. Now the slash on the iPhoto icon on the dock is gone, but when I try to open iPhoto I am directed to download the iPhoto app again, in an endless loop. Is anyone out there experiencing the same phenomena? How do get to my photos?

  • Can't open iPhoto after iMovie 10.0.3 update

    Hi,
    I can't open iPhoto after iMovie 10.0.3 update with message:

    iPhoto can not be opened while it is being updated.
    But problem is, that nothing idicate there is some iPhoto update.
    Please help Apple.

    I don't understand why first update has almost 2GB and there is also second update which has around 300MB, so I can see two iMovie updates in App Store - Updates.

  • Upgraded to Yosemite,  Created new apple ID as couldn't remember last one now can't update iPhoto receive message this update not available for this apple Id either because it was bought by a different user or item refunded or cancelled.

    upgraded to Yosemite and now can't update Iphoto or Imovies receiving message this update not available for this apple ID because it was bought by a different user or item refunded or cancelled.  Is there an easy fix

    Unfortunately, anything obtained at the app store remains tied to the Apple ID used to obtain it forever. You will either have to start over with your new ID or try to recover the original ID.

  • After loading yosemite can't get permissions from any network PC - OK from MACs on network...any advice?

    after loading yosemite can't get permissions from any network PC - OK from MACs on network...any advice?

    would love to...way over my head so far...upgraded to Yosemite 10.10.2 - I have another MAC (motorola chipset...maybe 10.6?) and 3 PCs on the network...the older MAC linked up through the network just fine...
    I can see the Yosemite MAC on the PCs...I can open customer file folders (I am a printer) from the shared drive...I can drag files (let's just call them PDFs, they mostly are) to the MAC customer file...but if I try to open them from the PC I get an error message that says permission denied - or may be in use by another user. There are no other users. After I uploaded to Yosemite, I noticed most if not all drives and or folders had permissions changed to either no access or to read only...I've changed as many as I could find...drives, and folders...I can open those same files if I'm on the yosemite mac...Here's the catch, though...I was on a different floor and that PC can open a PDF on the Yosemite...but the RIP that prints our large format prints now won't print those files (whole RIP locks up) unless they are first dragged to the PC desktop...then all is fine. I thought it was MAC upgrade oriented, but I do have a PC that halfway works...I'm really stymied...

  • Trying got update iPhoto after OS update - This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled.???

    Trying got update iPhoto after OS update - This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled.

    With Yosemite you need to update to iPhoto 9.6.
    The error message means, that iPhoto has not been associated with your AppleID. You do not say, which iPhoto version you are trying to update from.
    Associating iPhoto with your AppleID should have happened, when you bought the computer with iPhoto preinstalled with MacOS X Lion or later or with the Mavericks upgrade, if your Mac came with SnowLeopard. Try, if you can "accept" iPhoto now:
    Sign into the AppStore with your AppleID
    Open the "Purchased" tab. Do you see iPhoto with an "Accept" button?
    Accepting associates your Apple ID with the preinstalled iPhoto. It should move iPhoto from the "Accept" portion of the App Store to the "Purchased" tab. After that, you should be able to update iPhoto from the Updates tab of the AppStore. If you do you not see the update there, try to buy iPhoto. iPhoto may show for free, so you do not have to pay again.
    Backup your iPhoto library, if you do not have a current backup.
    Uninstall iPhoto by deleting it from the Applications folder, otherwise you cannot buy it again. But do not empty the Trash, so you can put iPhoto back, if need be.
    Launch the App Store, click the "Store" menu, and sign in with your current AppleID.
    Open the main page "Featured" of the App Store and search for iPhoto.
    If iPhoto is listed as "Free", click the "Free" button to buy it with your current AppleID.
    If it is not showing as free, there is no help but contacting the App Store Support to sort out the AppleID. Use this link: http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact/
    After you update iPhoto, your iPhoto Library will need upgrading. Make a backup of your iPhoto Library, before you open iPhoto the first time after updating.
