Deleted app continues to ask for update on the Mac App Store

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So, I downloaded the Twitter app on an old Apple ID account (which I can no longer use because it was compromised) so I deleted it and tried reinstalling it with my new account but it continues to show an update available. I tried removing my Macintosh HD from spotlight and re-adding it but that only removed the badge on the icon. I can't update or reinstall the app. What do I do?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't SU use the receipts folder to determine if something can be updated.

No idea, any ideas on how to fix it?

Delete the offending receipt?  By no means take this as gospel as I was loth to reply as I am not sure if I am correct.  Maybe move/rename the receipt and see what happens.

 

I am assuming that when you run SU it is looking through your receipts saying you have this app and that it needs to update it (even though you don't have it)
