And I take it you upgraded already to OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 ?
The AppStore has some problems right now - too much traffic because of too many updates available at the same time. If might be wise simply to wait a few hours and to try again. Are there any problems with your internet connection?
Quit the download that got stuck and reboot, then try again later.

Added: If iPhoto came preinstalled on your Mac and you did not buy it from the App Store, you might try to update from here instead:

Thats the issue, I cannot get it to close at all. It has been a couple of days that this has been going on. No matter what I try it will not close it and keeps telling me that Safari needs to be closed as well. I close safari and no change. I do have OS X 10.8.2
Even tried a different download but it told me that i had to get the download from the Appstore.

have you tried a forced shut down - pressing the power button and rebooting?

If force rebooting does not help, contact Apple support: Apple - Mac App Store - Contact Support

I have had the same problem, AppStore showing 2 mins to complete the iPhoto 9.4.2 update and waited for hours. I forced a hard reboot, switch off and on. When restarted I went into AppStore and did a Resume on the install of iPhoto. 5 mins later iPhoto upgraded OK.

Having same issue with iPhoto 9.4.2 update on a MacBook Air. iPhoto installation has stalled. Installation is almost complete. Updates were downloading a OS upgrade at the same time but that is complete. Have an alert box that's asking to close Safari that won't close...asume this was related to the OS update which is complete. Can not force quit iPhoto, load iPhoto and no option to force quit the alert box.

Very similar issue, doing the iPhoto 9.4.2 update. Asks to shut down Safari, yet Safari will not shut down no matter what. Force Quit shuts it down, but the update app is not recognizing it. Long story short, I took the leap of force-shutting down the Mac (holding in power button). On reboot, Mac finished the install and the App Store Updates page no longer had the update listed on the page.
Frightening first time I've ever had problems like this with the Mac. Next time I do updates, I'm doing a fresh reboot beforehand, open NOTHING except the update app... Just in case it was really my dumb fault for doing an update with a zillion things going on.
