I have iPhoto 9.1.5 on a MacBook Pro 17" (late 2010) running OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2, I open iPhoto and select Check for Updates... It says iPhoto 9.4.2 is available so I push Launch Software Update and it launches the Mac App Store but then it says No Updates Available. This doesn't surprise me since I never bought through the App Store but instead installed from the iLife '11 install DVD. All of iLife updated fine until Apple started releasing automatic updates through the App Store ONLY. So I tried going on Apple Support and manually downloading the next available update (Tried 9.2.1 & 9.4.2), I launch the installer and it says iPhoto 9.1 or greater is required to install this update. I have 9.1.5 so I don't understand why it won't work. I even tried installing iPhoto 9.1 update and it says it requires iPhoto 9.0. I don't know what else to try except maybe calling Apple to see if they would give me a free download through the App Store (Highly unlikely). I refuse to purchase the whole suite AGAIN just because it won't update but I want my updates so I can use iCloud and Photo Stream. So frustrating. I have been dealing with this for a year so I finally decided to speak up and get some help with this. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks
