You have been in app support forums, googled the web and nothing, and then you found my blog!
Well, come in you are welcome. The way to solve this will involve opening your terminal, so start by opening it:
- Is it open? Nice, lets proceed. To install updates from you shell you can use an osx app called "softwareupdate":
~ softwareupdate -h usage: softwareupdate
[ ...] -l | --list List all appropriate updates -d | --download Download Only -i | --install Install
- Now to list the updates that you are seeing in your app store, you can type:
sudo softwareupdate -l
This will list all the your available updates in the form of:
* <label>-<version> <update description> * <label>-<version> <update description> ...
To ignore a specific update you just have to do:
sudo softwareupdate --ignore
Bellow is an example of use:
Imagine that, Mr. Jonh Doe installed Final Cut Pro version X.Y specific for some work he was doing, and then updates started dropping in his app store (OSX Maverics), so all he had to do after finding my blog was:
➜~ sudo softwareupdate -l Software Update Tool Copyright 2002-2012 Apple Inc. Finding available software Software Update found the following new or updated software: * FCPContent-1.0 Final Cut Pro X Supplemental Content (1.0), 622238K [recommended] ➜~ sudo softwareupdate --ignore "FCPContent" Ignored updates: ( FCPContent )
Notice that, between the first and the second command the app store red notification icon, disappeared finally.
