How to fix "installed" apps appearing in Mac App Store Update Pane
Authored by: think.different on Aug 30, '12 12:34:32PM

I also had this problem of zombie apps in the mac app store, because it was also seeing the app on my back drives.

I just fixed this by going into Sys Prefs > Spotlight > Privacy and adding my backup drive to this list. Literally as soon as the drive appeared in this list the updates list in MAS showed "No Updates Available".
