    iTunes App Store reporting 60+ updates for installed apps??
    Can someone please help me figure out why, ever since upgrading to iTunes 7.7.1, the Applications section of iTunes is reporting that there is "1 update available" for my installed applications, but upon clicking the notice to retrieve the update, it then shows that there are updates available for every single one of my 60+ installed applications...

    I've proceed to install all 60+ alleged updates, but upon doing so, iTunes still reports that there is 1 update available and clicking that notice still brings me to the iTunes store which still shows that there are 60+ updates available (even though I just went through the process of downloading/installing the updates?

    How can I get it to correctly report the number of available updates, because if this issue presists, the update notification feature is basically pointless for me.

    After trying out ever imaginable solution to the problem, I finally resolved the issue...

    Unfortunately, there was no 'magic-pill' set of steps that I can was merely a matter of tinkering with it long enough...

    I updated/installed (all 60+) Apps over and over...
    I logged out of my iTunes account, then back in...
    I deauthorized my computer as one of my 5 iTunes authorized machine, then reauthorized it...
    I restarted my iPhone, iTunes, and my computer...
    I ran disk utility to repair permissions, and also ran a battery of other maintenance/repair processes using the third-party app Cocktail...
    etc, etc...

    finally, out of the blue...I stopped getting the '1-Update-Available' notice and the subsequent 60+ updates that would appear when choosing to update...

    Hope this info helps others resolve their similar issues!

    Something very similar happened to me. It said that 4 apps had an update available, and upon checking, it was actually 35... which is the total of apps I have. I clicked on update and to my surprise it was apparently downloading everything again, but as some of the apps completed downloading, the "4" notification started to decrease until it was gone, now I'm just syncing the iPod and it looks like it's installing everything again.

    I had 33 updates today. Before that it'd been saying there was 1 update available for ages, except when I clicked on it there wasn't any... glad it's finally gone though.

    same thing was happening with me...
    it said 1 update available, then I clicked it, and it showed all my apps have upgrades available...

    now it seams to be working normally...
