I had this occur as well and managed to clear it.
2 things came together when this went away for me, so I'm still not sure which one did it or if it was a combo.
Either way, my issues with the app store have been resolved and I'm a happy user at the moment. I had the one you mentioned originally and then the phantom updates.
- Item #1: Run Windows update and install KB2756872.
- Item #2: Sync licenses
- Go in to the Windows Store
- Go to Settings
- Go to App Updates
- Click Sync licenses
- Click Check for Updates
- It took a reboot for it to clear

Already had that installed. It's working now, but it took some troubleshooting.
Everything is working now, so I'll just continue to enjoy Windows 8.
And is it just me, or do the Windows 8 Apps still suck? Haven't found one useful app yet. It's easier for me to go to eBay with Chrome rather than with the App.

Well I have this basic DSL modem box thing and it has a Firewall.
I disabled Windows Firewall service in services.msc and I was unable to update Metro Applications.
Turned it back on I was able to do so again. I am not sure what else I can say here.
I just checked, Windows Firewall is disabled and I cannot update things through the store.

Normal updates work - those rely on other networking services.
You Windows dev guys really have WAAAAY too complicated update systems, just update using like port 80 https..

This is the first time I ever heard anyone say that Windows Firewall messes with DSL router configurations. AFAIK FUD.
Firewall software like Windows Firewall will open the corresponding ports on your hardware firewall. I don't know that this is needed for updates (I wouldn't think so, but it was an idea). The mechanism for installing apps and app updates is Windows Update, so if apps aren't able to update then it's likely Windows itself wouldn't be able to be updated.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

So it seems Microsoft has now locked the Games app to ARM processors. I'm not sure what the purpose of this is, as you need to use it to play Games for Windows LIVE games.
Some comments in the app suggest it's only locked until Windows 8 is released, while others suggest that it's just locked to ARM processors now.
