MAS update

bob wilcox Feb 28, 2017 08:05AM PST

Hi, almost all of the latest MAS updates won't update my mac app (last 4-5)... I have to delete the app, and reinstall from MAS to get the updates?? On a 2012 mini and a 2009 mbp both on 10.11.6. I thought maybe the version just wasnt showing up correctly in the about outline screen but when i delete and reinstall update, both version and build versions both update.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for reaching out!

I spoke with the devs about this situation and they said it must be the error of your App Store.
I think I had something like that but maybe with iPad app.
Maybe you can try to re-log in your Apple account in App Store? I'm not sure if it helps, but you can just try.

And we're releasing the 3.17.1 soon: when the version will get available, could you please send us the screenshots of your purchased page and updates page in App Store app?

I tried that previously but I don't see how that could be if every other app store app shows in update pane??
Outline does not show up in updates pane.
All other apps do.
When i search for outline in app store it shows the correct version and an open button, when i select open and select about under menu items it still shows previous version, not the version shown in app store.

I will screenshot if it happens with 3.17.1

Well, we cannot investigate the case at the moment as we cannot recreate it.

If the situation repeats on the next update, I think we can give you the free coupon code for the new purchase.
You will be able to test if it helps.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the screenshots!

We've discussed this case and still think it's not Outline's bug.
It's something with the App Store app.

One of the devs suggested to clean the App Store cache.
You can try it.
Here is an article and you will find a lot of others in Google:

Please write to me if you need my help with it.

YES Alena,

Followed the link, followed the steps shown and had 4 other apps with updates weeks old also not showing up. Bookmarked for future use also. Thanks for your help figuring it out.
