I believe Apple screwed up something with the printer update. At first, *both* 2.14 and 2.16 wanted to be installed, with 2.14 installing *last* (and isn't that backwards?) After their installation, 2.14 keeps wanting to be installed. Over and over, 2.14 is always available to install again when softwareupdate checks for more updates.

Yeah, I actually noticed HP 2.14 coming up, installing, and then appearing again myself. Something's a little screwy with SU right now.

So first it shows HP Printer 2.16.1 as an update and then when its installed it shows HP Printer 2.14 as an update. I could understand if 2.14 showed up first maybe.

I have the same issue. It's really odd. I'm debating wether to do the update or not, but I'm stuck with the badge icon for the App Store until I do.

Edit that. I waited it out. When checking now, it shows no updates available. It appears to be fixed.

Must have gotten the printer update glitch fixed. My update installed only the 2.16.1.
