    Default Can no longer update apps
    Since Jailbreaking my new ipad I can no longer update apps I've paid for in the app store.
    I keep getting a "this discounted price is only available to customers who own a previous version of this item. To Purchase at full price click buy".
    Obviously I've already PAID for it. Very frustrating.
    Anyone know a fix?

    Be sure not to have anything "questionable" on the device or anything that is pirated. These will give you errors. I know you paid, but if you have anything at all pirated, remove it.

    I have no pirated apps.
    Also now keeps popping up with my US iTunes account when I update, not my Australian ID which I bought the apps with.
    Very frustrating.

    That is frustrating indeed.

    Try logging in with your Australian account, click the buy button as you usually would and then wait. This happened to me before, I wasn't charged for it though since I buy my apps legit. If you get charged again, contact customer support ASAP and report the issue.

    I would suggest getting the Cydia tweak called "update hider"

    It's free.

    After you install it, open up the Settings app and scroll down to "Update Hider". Then just hide all the apps that you can't update so they don't show up in the app store. If that means hide all of them, go for it
