Mac App Store Offering Updates for Ancient Operating Systems

This morning, the Mac App Store shows me the following updates:

Mas updates

I don’t think I really need to install these updates. In fact, I can’t. I had clicked Update All without noticing which updates were available, and was told that I couldn’t update everything.

Mavericks

Obviously, this is a glitch, but a strange one. I’m sure a lot of Mac users who don’t know exactly which version of macOS they have on their computers will be a bit flustered by this.

Update: a few hours later, these updates are no longer visible.
