    Error 100 is related to aunthentication and/or needing to accept tue new terms and agreement EULA. Unfortunately the AppStore does not tell you this or give you the chance to do this automatically other than the very first time the program is opened (on a per user account basis).

    Fix:
    Open the AppStore, sign out of it, quit the AppStore.
    Open iTunes, attempt to buy a new App; just download a free one that you have never downloaded. Now it should force to accept the new EULA terms and agreement. Accept, and if you need to attempt to buy/download the app again, otherwise let it download completely then quit iTunes.

    Open the AppStore, go to download something and it should ask you to sign in and this time actually work.

    Quit iTunes

    Open the AppStore> Sign Out

    This has something to due with authentication and/or needing to or not having accepted tye new EULA Terms of Agreement. Unfortunately the AppStore only ask you to do this at the first launch of the app (on a per user basis).

    Solution:

    Quit AppStore

    Open iTunes> Purchase a new app (it can be a free one but has to be one you have never downloaded).

    It should prompt you to accept the new EULA. (Accept it)

    Make sure the app finishes downloading completely.

    Quit iTunes. Open AppStore and try again; it should ask you to sign in and then work...if it fails reboot your computer and try the AppStore download again.

    Unmounting works for me too!

    so unmounting bootcamp doesnt hurt the windows installed on it does it? after remounting everything should be the same booting from windows right?

    I can't believe this worked. Thanks for the tip. I'm shaking my fist at Apple for this one.

    I had the same problem, but unmounting bootcamp partition did not help.

    I had disabled Spotlight some years ago, but it did not affect anything until now...

    So my solution is to re-enable spotlight (or the mds service with:

    sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

    )

    After this App store freeze is disappeared. I hope this comment helps for others.

    After a couple weeks of being unable to use the App store, re-enabling Spotlight fixed the problem for me. Thanks kolesm! I disabled spotlight so long ago I hadn't even thought of it being an issue.

    Thanks a ton kolesm! I did the same thing and re-enabling spotlight did the trick for me too!

    Thanks kolesm, enabling spotlight did it for me too.

    Kolesm is the man

  • aboltinsh Level 1 (0 points)

    Indeed, re-enabling Spotlight fixes the problem. Thanks Kolesm and Internet!

  • jbmerli Level 1 (0 points)

    +1 re-enabling spotlight. Thanks kolesm !

  • innthewest Level 1 (0 points)

    Having the same problem. No bootcamp mounted, and spotlight is enabled. Still nothing and its driving me crazy!

  • mileszhou Level 1 (0 points)

    Same thing. One more thing: I signed out App Store, and tried downloading an app, it didn't bother pop up a box asking logging-in.

     

    Why nobody from Apple comes in and give an answer?!

    yes, this was the case for me too.  I disabled it using "spotless" and had to reenable it.  Now app store works.  Thank you!
