The versions of iPhoto and Garageband that are currently in the APP Store are newer versions than the ones that shipped pre-installed on you computer, and so your copies could not be "updated" or "redownloaded", because you first have to Purchase these newer versions. They are not free to you. Your alternative, assuming you have a backup copy of your harddrive in Time Machine or an external harddrive, is to reinstall your previous version of these Apps from your backup copy. You did make a backup copy of your harddrive before "upgrading"?
(Note: I had to do the same thing.)
Hope this helps

This is absolutely incorrect, You shouldn't be giving out the wrong information when you have no idea what's going on. If you own iPhoto you own it, updates and everything. He should be able to go view his purchases via the app store and re install that way which is what i'm sure he was doing.
This will explain what the problem is and walk you through fixing the issue. I just fixed my problem this way and had the same exact problem you did.
