    Updating apps issue

    Hey all. In the App Store, I have 3 updates. But when I click update, it says "you can not update this software since you have not owned the major version of this software". However, I do not install cracked apps. All 3 of these I purchased.
    Any ideas what could be causing this?
    Thanks

    Maybe the apps were a free trial version, only good for a limited time. What are the apps that are giving you these problems?

    They're splash top 2 and FTP on the go pro.
    There was one more, but you were right about it being a trial version.

    Have you tried deleting, then re-installing the apps?

    Did you purchase them with another ID or in another "country" store? The update process only registers the ID you're currently logged in, as far as I know. (I had to switch for Google Earth and Google Maps.)

    Looks like that was the issue purchased when I was on a different device with different ID.

    Thanks!
