Ok, the problem is somehow you have managed (not blaming or anything like that) to download the update pakage and not the full Mac OS X version.  Your file is probably only about 300-400 MB when unpacked and the full installer is about 4-5 GB. Reopen App Store, then on Purchases, hold down the Option key when you click Purchases.  That should show you the entire purchase list, including your recent attempt at ML download.  You want a file like Mountain Lion, and not Mountain Lion Update.  See what titles are shown when you do an Option-click on Purchases. The task at hand is to download the correct file, the problem is finding it first.  For some reason the system has given you the wrong file.
