When I open GarageBand, it also says there is a new update available and it will open Software Update to find it.
But when it searches, Software Update doesn't find any new updates...
Hi Anton ...
Go to your Applications folder. Right or control click the GB app then click Get Info.
What version number does it say?
6.0.5 is the version being sold at the Mac App Store currently.
Since GB came pre installed on your Mac, the updates will be available from Software Update, not the App Store.
You could try deleting the .plist (preferences) file associated with Software Update.
Go to ~/Library/Preferences. Move the com.apple.softwareupdate.plist file to the Trash. Then click Software Update from your Apple menu.
And BTW, Photo Stream is a feature of iCloud which is unrelated to GarageBand.

JoseAnt's tip here worked for me: 6.0.5 installed.
This did not work?
1. put the GrageBand-app in the trash (look in Finder under applications, or other folder you've moved GarageBand to)
2. go to the App Store, look for GarageBand , it now shows as "accept" and no longer as installed.
3. click on accept and fill in your AppleID and password.
4. go to the App Store / purchases (I hope this is the correct translation ) and install the new version of GarageBand .
5. done and enjoy the new version.

Please do not highjack a topic with your seperate issue. You are in the wrong forum, you should be posting in the iPad forum. This is the Mac App Store forum, apps for Macs. The version of GB for Macs is not the same as the version for iOS devices.'09 Mac mini, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iOS (5.0.1) Mac fanboi since 1984!
The preinstalled iLife apps are the same versions as those in the Mac App Store and are updated through the MAS, not Software Update. However, you need to accept these apps on a new Mac into your iTunes/MAS account before they can be updated. Unless something has been done to mess up the process, you should find the apps on the Purchased pane of the MAS with Accept buttons. After accepting them you should be able to update them.'09 Mac mini, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iOS (5.0.1) Mac fanboi since 1984!

it worked properly till the 3rd point....but when i entered my apple id and password it says..."These apps were already assigned to another Apple ID, and they will be available in that Apple ID's Purchases list. If you don't have access to that Apple ID and want to receive future updates, you will need to purchase the applications."

I have the same problem as Anton0, new 27in imac in november, similar messages came with iphoto and could not update, spent hours over several days with Apple help in Ireland which resulted in them sending me an ILife disc.
What bugs me if I get a system failure and have no way of downloading the operating system via appstore because of a factory mess up with the original installation.
somewhat disenchanted with apple.
Maybe Anton you could persuade apple to send you a disc.
