How do I fix the blank App Store on my Mac?

Check Internet Connection

Reboot Mac Device

Additional Tip: To do this, Navigate to the Apple icon > Restart… and click Restart once to confirm.

Disable DNS blocker

Navigate to Apple menu > System Settings, Select Network > Advanced, and then click the DNS tab. Select any DNS servers listed, and then tap the (-) sign to remove them and apply your changes.

    • Choose System Settings. Then click General in the sidebar and Software Update on the right.
    • Or choose System Preferences. Then click Software Update.
  • If Software Update finds new software, click the Update Now or Upgrade Now button to install it.
