Forgot to mention: This request for password showing her ID only happens if I try to use the UPDATE ALL link. If I click to update only one apps, individually, the dialogue shows my ID requesting password.
I did 8 out of 10 updates so far (one by one). Left a couple behind as a reference to this issue, but if no answers surface, I will finish them all individually.
This is rather strange.
I am having the exact same problem with my iphone.
I was trying to change my apple id which was an old email that Ino longer have.
I changed it but accidentally it typed in the wrong ending .net instead of .com.
I have finally been able to change my apple id in my itunes and in my iphone under the shopping setting.
but unable to change it in my updates for apps. It's really frustrating as the old wrong id keeps showing up and it does not exist!
I would love to know how to fix this.
I seem to have the same problem. I tried to update Awesome Note and some other applications but it prompted my for my old Apple ID password. I entered the password and it returned the message:
'This discounted price is only available to customers who own a previous version of this item. To purchase this item at the full price, click Buy.'
I am logged in with my most recent Apple ID which I have purchased almost all of my apps on so I don't know why it continues to prompt me with the wrong address. I have tried restarting, resetting, restoring and deleting and re-downloading some apps but whenever a new update occurs it still refuses to recognize the account from which it was purchased. The problem seems to have started since I upgraded to iOS 4.3.1. Updating applications worked fine before and since this is the first time I have tried to update since I upgraded I believe, and correct me if I'm wrong, the problem lies within the firmware.
Any help on this matter would be appreciated since I usually update applications through the iPod, not iTunes,
Update: It now seems that the problem has spread to downloading apps also. I tried manually downloading Awesome Note again but it still prompts me for the wrong password of the account on which I have not purchased most applications.

I have noticed exactly the same problem and have not been able to solve it.
Whatever account that I am looged into, when I try to do an update it prompts for the password and logs into the first account.
One thing I have not tried, is changing accounts on my MAC and syncing when logged in with that ID (I am away from home at the moment so I can't try it).
Does not work for me. (My iPhone is not jailbroken.)
I downloaded a paid app "Imray Marine Rules and Signals v1.5" in the USA with my original account (Account1) then moved countries and needed to create a new Apple account (Account2). If I get 'Info' for the app, it is registered to Account1.
A new version 1.6 of the Imray app has now been released.
I have set up only Account1 on the iphone (settings - App Store) and both Account1 and Account2 in iTunes on my computer. My iphone always tells me there is 1 app to update. However, when I try to update this app on my iphone, I get asked for the password for Account2, then the download fails as it says I do not have a paid earlier version to update.
When I am logged into my computer iTunes as Account1 and try to update it on the computer iTunes, it says there are no apps to update (although my version of the app is definitely the old version).
When I search for the app in iTune Store, it tells me I have already downloaded version 1.6 of the app and the download button is grayed out.
If I temporarily delete the app from my iTunes then try to re-download, I am asked to purchase it again.
If I log into iTunes as Account2 then try to download it, I am asked to purchase it.
Any ideas? I feel I have tried every option and no success.
ok so i was on the phone for an hour and a half with apple tryin to figure this out..ima try and help u as best i can..if not plz dont yell at me.
1.go to appleid.apple.com
2.click not sure if you have an apple id?
3. type in all the possible email addresses that you know.
4.after that either send email verification or answer the security questions
5.after all of that is done, go into itunes and enter each apple id and if it says verify account then verify and continue to the next 1.
6.after all of those steps are done, go on to ur device,click settings, scroll down to store,click the apple id that is shown and sign out.
7. try signing into each of the apple ids and see if that works.
8. if it does keep that particular id as the default for ur device so u wont have to do this again. if not you missed an apple id and you need to try the steps again.
this is all i can remember at the moment.. i hope this helps at least a little bit.
