I had some problems logging in on app store, but I solved it through some guides on the net.

When I log in and try to download it asks for a password for the user "GROWINGNEEDS@GMAIL.COM". I am not growingneeds@gmail.com, and I have never heard of that address.
I don't know know why the app store asks for password (for another user) when I am already logged in?

I finally managed to START the download, and download 100% of file. In App Store -> Purchases it seems to be stuck at "installing... 8 mins left"... I checked appstore.log and I am getting spammed with above message constantly.

Launchpad Progressbar is also stuck.
I am on 10.9.2 and I just want to download 10.9.2 so that I can make a new Uniboot USB.

du -sh /Applications/OS X Install Mavericks shows about 200kb.

Thanks.

I don't know why but there seems to be something quirky with some apple services involving a gmail account, Ive noticed this with folks running genuine macs commenting in the apple forums.

This is affecting me too and I can't get it to download at all. Has anyone figured this out?

Actually, I just managed to get it to download. I'm not sure WHICH thing fixed it, but I signed into iTunes and then I went to Mavericks on Apple.com and clicked Upgrade Now. It brought me to Mavericks in the AppStore and when I clicked download it let me put in my own Apple ID. So, yey :D Hope this helps someone else.

Okay, NOW I think I have figured it out. If you have another OS X installer somewhere, Mac will find it and try to update it when you download Mavericks. And then if there's SOMEHOW :think: another Apple ID in there... (Like if you got it from a certain website that provides such things) it'll put that ID in the the sign in box from it. Soo.. I dunno if everyone else in this thread already figured that out, but... yeah.

What i did is made a new user account and logged in with my apple Id in Mac app store and it start downloading. its downloading right now. i am going to reinstall the os and see if the email is still there or not. if you just trying to make bootable flash drive this works..
