THOSE WHO ARE STILL HAVING PROBLEMS SENDING OR RECEIVING INVITATIONS/NOTIFICATIONS ON ICAL OR FIND MY FRIENDS APP....I FOUND THE SOLUTION!!! 100% PROOF TO SOLVE THE ISSUE!!!
1) GO TO ICLOUD.COM ON UR COMPUTER
2) LOG IN WITH UYOUR APPLE ID AND CLICK ON YOUR NAME AT TOP RIGHT CORNER
3) CLICK ON YOUR EMAIL/APPLE ID
4) CLICK MANAGE APPLE ID
...HERE IS WHERE YOUR PROBLEM GETS SOLVED...
5) CHANGE YOUR APPLE ID/ PRIMARY EMAIL ADDRESS TO AN ALTERNATE EMAIL AND SAVE CHANGES
6) LOG OUT OF THAT MANAGE APPLE ID PAGE: https://appleid.apple.com
7) CHECK THE EMAIL INBOX AND VERIFY THAT ALTERNATE EMAIL YOU JUST CHANGED YOUR APPLE ID TO.
(NOTE: TO VERIFY AND LOG BACK IN, USE YOUR NEW APPLE ID, BUT USE CURRENT PASSWORD YOU HAD WITH ORIGINAL APPLE ID)
8) LOG BACK IN AT: https://appleid.apple.com
9) APPLY STEPS 5 THRU 7 AND CHANGE YOUR APPLE ID BACK TO THE ORIGINAL
10) REPEAT STEP 8 AND MAKE SURE YOUR ORIGINAL APPLE ID SAYS "VERIFIED"
11) ENJOY RECEIVING NOTIFICATIONS AS USUAL...JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE
P.S. PREVIOUS TO ALL THESE STEPS, I LOGGED OUT OF EVERYTHING APPLE THAT HAD MY APPLE ID ATTACHED TO IT...I DON'T BELIEVE IT IS NECCESSARY TO DO SO...SO TRY WITHOUT DOING SO FIRST...IT MIGHT SAVE YOU THE TROUBLE!!!

This worked for me, too! Thanks for solving an age-old problem!!!!
The menu was slightly different, and I could not delete the ....@me.com apple-ID as an address, but removing the alternative addresses worked. Re-adding an alternative address did no harm thereafter.

ALFABET YOU F*****G GOD!!!!
I would like to say that this WORKS!!
I contacted Apple on the 31st Jan and was put in contact with an Apple Senior Advisor!!! After 38 DAYS they still had NO idea why this wasnt working and Alfabet just NAILED it.
I'm nearly tearing up because of this fix as its massively important to my business.
Thank you SO much Alfabet!
•if you have an @me account you can't change it, but just delete the alternative email address and add a fresh new one in, then I deleted icloud from my phone and re-added like Peppi77 did!

You had one unhappy customer in me, and this guy alfabet just saved you a client!!

Having real problems with invites from my wife and tried following alfabets instructions above but get stuck at stage 5. How can I change my primary email/apple id? This is fixed isn't it? There is no way of changing this as there isn't a clickable edit/delete in blue like there is for alternate email below it. I have logged in manage apple id between stages 4 and 5 also which i guess i must do and this isn't mentioned in instructions. Please she'll me see where I'm going wrong as its driving me mad and it seems to work for everyone else.

Yeah, Beano, if your primary address is your mac.com/me.com/icloud.com address you can't change it, which seems to be the problem. I have two apple IDs. I use my gmail address as my "main" apple ID, and I use that for pretty much everything. EXCEPT for my apple mail etc, I have to use my mac.com Apple ID. It's super frustrating that I can't just combine them. So I've gone through all alfabet's steps but it hasn't worked for me either.
As it is, if my husband "invites" me to an event using my mac.com address, I'll get an alert in my phone and it works. But if he uses my gmail (which is my main email address and the only one I ever use), I (sometimes) will get an email alert that lets me go to the website and accept the event, etc. I have spent HOURS trying to fix this problem, and this is the best I've come up with. Why on earth apple won't just let us merge everything into ONE apple ID is beyond me.... But one thing you might try is adding/deleting alternate addresses- some people seem to have had luck with that.

I am having major issues with iCloud (web and desktop calendar app) not sending invitations out to invitees using my iCloud account. I'm this close to switching to Gmail for good, and I so don't want to.
Unfortunately you cannot change your primary Apple ID email address anymore, only the alternate email addresses. So sorry to say Alfabet's solution doesn't work, at least not at this point.

I followed the steps on my iPhone 4S and I the invitees feature is working but when I did a test the notifications are going to my alternate email address & not my primary email. I don't want that.

rjonna: I noticed this too, but I think thats just the notification of receivng the invitation in the mail, not on the calendar.
I am still not recieving in calendar app invitations, only in mail, even though I checked the box in iCloud
