    Thanks Ed!


    I was getting this problem in red text when I tried to sign in:

    ConnectionManager::invoke::Failed to find service connection url.


    Sure enough, quitting App Store and deleting the two App Store files under Library/Cookies did the trick.


    I also just did an upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion.

    I just wanted to add my thanks - because this also worked for me - however, I had to modify it for my situation.  And here is my modificaiton - for anyone else who has the problem:


    I had the same problem as described - except that I noticed that I COULD login when logged in under the guest account (or any other account).  Just deleting the cookies and allowing them to recreate was not enough for me.  I had to


    1. login to the guest account,

    2. then login to mac app store

    3. copy the newly created cookie ( to another drive

    4. logout

    5. log back in to my regular account

    6. copy the cookie from external drive back to my library.

    7. open mac app store and login - it worked!


    So, I assume that some corrupt data is being copied from icloud or something and that's why re-creating the cookie wasn't working.


    Anyway - thanks for pointing the way!!!

    I tried Ed's solution (deleting the suggested files from the Cookies folder) but it didn't work for me on my Mountain Lion system (upgraded from Snow Leopard).  I hunted in Library/Preferences (access by holding the option key and selecting from the Go menu while in Finder) and found:  Dragged that to the trash, and voila!  App Store worked again.

    this worked for me: -in-os-x/


    I did have to do a restart aftwerwards before I was able to login again and update my apps.
