Fix Mac App Store Error @@errorNum@@

mac app store error

I launched the Mac App Store today and when trying to download an app I was hit with a strange error saying my request could not be completed, here’s the exact message:

“We could not complete your request. There was an error in the App Store. Please try again later. (@@errorNum@@)”

The “@@errorNum@@” looks a lot like an error in reporting itself, so in other words I got an error in my error (cue Xzibit meme). Nonetheless it was preventing me from downloading anything from the App Store.

Fixing this was as easy as quitting and relaunching the App Store, and since then I haven’t received it again.

That’s a bit more simple than fixing Mac App Store Error 100 which involves logging out of your user account. I suspect many of these errors are just growing pains and Apple will work them out in a software update.

    yo dawg…

    I got error 100 but haven’t seen this one. To me it looks like a bug more than a proper error, @@ERROR is a MS SQL Server thing… how ironic would it be if the App Store was running on Microsoft SQL Server?

    AppStore stinks… It is buggy and useless tool. Also not fully planned and builded to be ready for production. But yes Apple “knows” what you need… Apple good in hardware making, OS is cool, but applications by itself just sucks…
