    Onio has the answer...

     

    Go to a different app that was downloaded recently, then copy that MASreceipt into the app that is causing the problem.

    As much as people claim they never had cracked apps, having to change the MASreceipt means you had at least one pirated copy at one stage.

     

    If you bought a copy after the fact, good for you, but this is not an App Store glitch, it's caused by pirated software.

    Got it Fixed. Problems with asdfff2011@mail.ru email and Angry Birds Update.

     

    1. Download "Twitter" from the App Store using your Apple ID account.

    2. Go to "/Applications/Twitter.app/Contents" and copy the "_MASReceipt" folder.

    3. Go to any app that you personaly put on the computer or you know are the cause. Go to the "Contents" folder of that app. Paste "_MASReceipt" into that folder. Make sure to overwrite the exsting folder.

     

    I did this for Motion 5 and Final Cut Pro to see if it fixed it. Which on my end it did.

     

    I hope this worked. Spread it around.

    I've a similar problem:

    In my AppStore there's a Update for "Nyan Cat: Lost In Space", but if I try to update, appstore asks me for the following Apple-ID: "zoltan.kormendi21@gmail.com", wich isn't mine!

     

    What can I do? There's no possibility to delete or find the Nyan Cat App, because it isn't in my purchases or somewhere on my mac!

     

    I also can't find any MASreceipt in the appstore app!

    Belde, the MASreceipt is not really in the App Store... When you download an app, (use Twitter), go to Finder, then Control Click on the app you are having the problem with... This should show you some sort of menu and you want to click on "package contents." Then find the folder that says "MASreceipt" and delete it, copy the receipt from your Twitter App to your new location.... Does that make sense? I'm assuming you are using a Macbook or Mac, any questions?

    Sorry, I don't get it! It would make sense if I actually had this Nyan-Cat App. Because AppStore only shows me an Update for the nyancat-app, wich I've never downloaded, so it isn't anywhere on my Mac! But thanks for trying help

    Download twitter, show in finder, right click, show contents, copy mac repeict and paste it into final cut x mac repeict. This fixes the problem if you have final cut. : D

     

    Another option would be to buy Final Cut Pro X. ; D

    I have the same problem. Partitioned my HD, installed mountain lion on 150gb partition. I do not have any extra apps except for Microsoft word and a monster ate my homework(free). All legally obtained and installed. I have an update for codebox, and an apple id I've never heard of. The developer said he can resolve this issue. I have emailed him. Hope its fixed.

     

    Btw, I do not have cracked apps/Final cut pro x or motion 5

    "you just have to remove the receipt data that is in your FCPX Folder under Contents/_MASReceipt/

    or you just buy FCPX and try it legal to avoid problems like that 

    sBOONs....everywere i go "

     

    This is the working solution!!!

    i have a fix (THAT WORKS ON (SNOW LEOPARD / LION AND MOUNTIAN LION) it means messing around abit and is legal if you paid fot fcpx in the first place

     

    just download the twitter app from the app store (its free)

     

    then right click and click "open package contents"

     

    go to the contents/MASReceipt/receipt

     

    then just copy the file "receipt" in the same place in the fcpx MASReceipt folder and replace the file with the one from the twitter app

     

    it should work and no update for angybirds to be seen in the app store

     

    fcpx still works fine too

     

    Hope this helps the problem is anoying and reading the comment from other poeple i managed to think of a work around that works
