Currently the GarageBand versions that came preinstalled with OS Lion do not work well together with the AppStore, since the Mt. Lion release. Try to install the the GarageBand 6.0.5 release from the Support page on top of your GarageBand installation. This solved it for some posters:

Go into Computer>Macintosh HD>Library>Application Support. Trash the Garageband folder. Now go to "Applications" and trash the Garageband app. Empty your trash folder. Now open the app store and reinstall Garageband. Once installation is finished, you will be able to install the Instruments/Loops pack with no errors.
Hope this helps.

Hey sorry but I recently bought a macbook pro with retina display and was wondering if you bought this version as I have exactly the same garageband problem but didnt get an update and it still wont let me update for more loops, can anyone help?

It seems to be a compatibillity problem. The preinstalled iLife pakage was designed for Lion and has errors when running in Mountain Lion. If you aren't getting an update in the app store, follow the instructions in my last post. That should fix the problem.

Ok thanks, and his may sound stupid but I'm new to macs and i don't seem to have a computer file or library file relating to your previous post, have they removed them on the retina display laptops or in Mountain Lion? I know it may sound stupid but I spent ages searching for these files and typed them into quicksilver and spotlight, it couldn't find them.

You have a System library; MacOS needs it.
Locate the icon of your Macintosh Hard Disk on your Desktop and double click it.
Then you should see your System Library folder.
Or use the Finder's "Go" menu: Go > Go To Folder
and enter: /Library
to show the System Library.

Thanks that was the only thing that worked for me!
My config: iLife'11 preinstalled on a late 2012 MBP with OSX Lion after I upgraded to Mountain Lion myself.

I'm running on Mountian Lion 10.8.2 and have the same problems as described by iMartin95. However, when I delete the GB app and the folder in the application support and try to install GB 6.0.5 Update it displays a message "Garageband 6.0 or later is required to install this update". Do I need to re-install Garageband first? It seems that I would have to pay $14.99 to do that.

If your GarageBand came preinstalled or you bought it from the AppStore, you have to sign into the AppSTore with the Apple ID you used to accept or purchase GarageBand, Then download and reinstall from the "Purchased" tab of the AppStore. You cannot use the updater from the support page.
