Mac App Store weirdness

I'm having trouble with XCode and the Mac App Store. Has anyone else had similar problems?

I purchased XCode 4.0.1 from the Mac App Store. It installed just fine and I was able to use it. Today, I look at the Purchases tab of the Mac App store, and it shows that XCode has an update, although there are no updates showing in the Update tab. When I click the Update button, I get a dialog that says "You have updates available for other accounts. To update this application, sign in to the account you used to purchase it." As far as I can tell, I *am* signed into the account I used to purchase XCode 4.0.1. I've even checked the email receipt *AND* the purchase history in iTunes. I've tried logging out and logging back in, with no luck. I have even just now deleted my entire Developer folder, and tried again without any change. (This is also happening with the Trillian application, but I'm not using that app, so I don't care that much about it. I just want my updated XCode!)

Anyone have thoughts about what I can do or try to resolve this issue? I have a ticket in with Customer Support, but I'm still working with first level support (yay) and am hoping to escalate it to someone who can help with the issue. But given the turn-around time with customer support, I'm feeling somewhat impatient. :-)

I think this happened to me. I deleted all my XCode software receipts and /Developer and tried again.


[sudo] rm /var/db/receipts/*Xcode*
