It’s been a hard few days for iCloud. Now the App Store is suffering a serious outage that’s keeping apps from downloading and updating.
Users around the world are seeing the message, “The item you tried is no longer available” when attempting to download an app.
Weird @AppStore bug is telling me (& lots of others, per Twitter search) “the item you tried to buy is no longer available” for common apps.

While some users are still able to download apps, the vast majority are unable to download anything.
We’ve reached out to Apple for comment and will update if we receive a reply.
Update: Apple has acknowledged issues with the App, iBooks, and iTunes Stores that are “affecting some users.”
