Apple App Store

May 20, 2020:
There appear to be major problems with the Mac App Store in certain regions of the world at the moment, affecting purchases and the re-download of already purchased Apps with older versions of macOS (prior to macOS Catalina). If you are affected by this issue, the download of any App will fail with the message “We could not complete your purchase. cancelled” (sic).

Apple could not fix this problem so far (May 21), so unfortunately it might not be possible to successfully complete purchases or downloads for our App Store software products System Monitor and Battery Monitor. Please contact Apple support if you are affected by this issue.
