iTunes can't verify the identity of the server
I am running OS 10.8.5 and after update of iTunes I get the following message when opening it up; iTunes can't verify the identity of the server "init.itunes.apple.com". I can still see my music and book files in iTunes by clicking Continue. However, I cannot access iTunes Store. But more serious is that I cannot access App Store to run updates. When trying a message comes up, "Cannot connect to the App Store" - An Internet connection is required, despite that I do have connection to Internet, Safari and Mail works just fine. What happened during update of iTunes?
