The Mac App Store in OS X Yosemite 10.10 is not only a source of plethora of applications but also is a source of software updates for your Mac. Couple of days ago I faced a weird issue on my MacBook conveying “Cannot Connect To App Store” with Greyed out screen. While searching online I came across number of solutions from deleting the PRAM to clearing the certificates, but nothing worked for me (at least for me).
