    Hi all, I have an Ipad mini 1st gen running 7.0.4. I'm faced with a problem "all of a sudden". I have pending app updates in AppStore, but I can't get them to update. When I click on "update", it opens the app. "Update all" is also greyed out. I do not have automatic update turned on and no apps are "stuck" updating. I've restarted many times to no avail. This suddenly started about 3 days ago. Anyone has a fix?

    Try turning on automatic update then Robot your device. Make sure your connected to a wi fi if your apps are bigger than 100mb

    Tried that, no joy. I've attached a screen shot of my AppStore for reference.

    If that's the case then you'll have to manually update your app.

    I can't. When I click update the app simply opens.

    This seems to be an issue with jailbroken devices still on 7.x. My iPhone 4 running 6.12 is able to update as normal, but both iPads and my wife's iPhone all running 7.12 are behaving in the same manner.

    This was one of the issues I had. You don't wanna know what my solution was.

    I somehow had a feeling it had to do I with my jb status. Granted it was jb long long ago. I hope the fix was not to restore and re-jb. I checked the apps and they "seem" to be updating although I'm not seeing them do it.

    My husband was experiencing this on his iPad 3 last night. His is jailbroken on 7.x. Anyone who knows the solution and can share would be greatly appreciated.

    I think its a bug, but check if your app version is the same with the latest on on appstore and if not try this

    if the app in appstore is higer then what's on your device then do this.

    open appstore
    search the app that you want to update on the " seach "
    and then open it " you will see it will update "

    Dude, I have the same problem with jailbroken iPhone 5s 7.0.6
    The best solution is open the updates section in appstore, click anywhere else on the app two times( 1st time clicking it makes a window dropped down stating the details of the update, now click again and it will take you to it's app page) and voila! You click on the Update button and it starts updating!

    This is NOT just for JB devices. There are other forum threads elsewhere on the net which discuss this. The problem is rare, but happens to enuf people that its 'a thing'. Apple wont (yet) acknowledge the problem. Its possible to update the apps using an alternate method ... choose 'Purchased' at bottom of App Store view. For each app, click into the space in the middle of the entry (to right of icon, to left of [OPEN] button). You will see a pop-up window which will have an [UPDATE] option, click on that and it will update the app. But, this will not resolve the problem (will re-occur when next update for the app is pushed to app store).
