.....does this every time. sierra. Macbook Pro
what do? I just want to update the garage band
Try this https://github.com/mas-cli/mas
I had a look. dunno how to implement it.
any other ideas that recommendation is over my head
seems to be similar to your problem
This bit might fix it:
Might be a corrupt .plist.
Do a backup, preferably 2 backups on 2 separate drives.
Quit the application.
Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J. When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder. Select Library. Then go to Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist. Move the .plist to your desktop.
Restart the computer, open the application, and test. If it works okay, delete the plist from the desktop.
If the application is the same, return the .plist to where you got it from, overwriting the newer one.
If it still doesnt work id be backing up via time machine and checking your hdd for problems. if hdd is fine the only solution would be reloading osx and updating to latest update and then restoring from your time machine
can't find com.apple.appstore.plist
went to mac hdd> library and preferences and there's not a com.apple.appstore.plist
try to open it ....
