Customer Question

I can't open my iPhoto it has a white no circle around it and says that it needs to update. When i choose to update that what it says that it is not an app in the united states. So I went the other route to try and update and it says This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled.
