For 2 days, trying to update GarageBand, iMovie, and iPhoto. Getting message from App Store "waiting".  Getting message from iPhoto and others "can't open while being updated."  How can I find out status and complete update?


I am running Mountain Lion.  IPhoto and the other Apps were working fine before I installed Mountain Lion.

    Forgot to say, iWork 9.2 update downloaded and installed perfectly in the last hour, why iLife apps won't?

    I'm wondering if your internet connection is below par.   Have you done a broadband speed check recently?


    Warning.   If you do this, do not respond to any advertising of ways to speed up your computer.   Your ISP will advise on how to improve things.
