My iWork suite (iWork 09) was originally bought on a DVD. Will the apps be updatet in Appstore? Or will I have to buy the new updated versions from Appstore?

Why will they have to be purchased again? I paid good money for it only a few years ago...
I agree that this should be a free upgrade for current owners.
Saw this solution in this thread, might be worth a shot:
