Just bought a Macbook Pro, and trying to get my software updates. I do have an old Apple Account but the Card i used to use has now expired and i dont have a new one that will work(Our current country location is not supported by App Store). So how am i supposed to update this thing? The old Software update was so much easier.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    You don't. If it's not supported, then your location is not supported.

    Due to currency laws, and government beuracracy, etc, your account can not be made universal. You are asking for a simple solution in a complex problem.

    It is not so much Apple's decision behind this. Contrary to popular belief, they are often at the mercy of government rulings, and over-protective media publishers, developers, etc. Maybe in the future this will be solved.... sort of like how the whole world will end up Speaking Chinese and using the Euro
