Hi I have recently purchased a MacBook Pro 2012 (Ivy Bridge) and I was using GarageBand and was trying to get extra instruments and GarageBand said I could either

a) "Download now" or b) "download later"

and the 1st option I click it claims that it is currently downloading but I waited and waited and even restarted GarageBand an hour later and none of the instruments showed up. And the I also tried "download later" and that option stated that I would get a notification in the MacApp Store to update when I opened it and it nothing showed up. What must I do to update, I really like GarageBand and I'm using it to make a little bit of music but I'd like to know what I must do in order to get the other instruments on there.
