This is in the spirit of a thread about a month ago about using TeX on different OS.

I have two macs running OS 10.6.8.  I decided to upgrade my IMac to Yosemite.  This has to be done through the app store.  I find that I cannot get any response when I hit "Get" or, on the Updates page, Free Upgrade.  Both Macs have the same resjponse, not just for Yosemite but for using "Get" on any app.  Last Spring I succeeded in updating a program I had bought in 2012 through app store.

Is it just my machines, or has app store been changed so it no longer supports 10.6.8?  If you have that OS, let me know if app store still works for you.  An easy test is to try to download a game like Solitaire.  When I tried that, "Get" changed to "Install", but clicking that had no effect.

I call Apple support and confirmed that my two machines are physically capable of being upgraded.  Maybe app store changed when they put out Yosemite.

I would appreciate any suggestions or feedback.
