When I go into the app store and try to update all, it goes to a different apple id by default.  It says I'm logged into my ID but goes to a different one.  How do I fix this problem?

    Were those apps that have updates originally download by the account that is showing ? If there were then only that account will be able to download updates to those apps, all content from Apple is tied to the account that downloaded it. If they were downloaded by the account that you are logged in as then does that show at the bottom of, for example, the Featured tab in the App Store app ?
