I'm having what seems to be a strange problem. I have iTunes 11.0.1, with apps I have downloaded on my machine. Regardless of an iPad, iPod or iPhone attached, clicking on the "Check for Updates" button will NOT work. At all. I get app update alerts on my devices when they are not connected, but never on my Mac, running 10.6.8.


Does anyone have an explanation for this?



And before you give simpleton answers, I don't have "Pregnancy tracker" in my apps, the computer is authorized for my AppleID, and it is irrelevant whether an iDevice is connected. The iTunes app simply refuses to check when I click the button.

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), iTunes 11.0.1
