How To Fix Blank App Store Update Page

Many people that recently updated their devices to the new iOS 6.1.3 have been facing numerous problems. One of them is the inability to update applications that needed updates from the App Store.

Usually, when the App Store is launched, updates page should reveal apps that needs to be updated and when you tap on those apps, the update should begin.

However, what we found was that, when the App Store is lunched, other pages like Featured, Top Charts, Genius and Search page displays information correctly. But when the Updates tab is tapped, it comes up blank. 
This issue is not only for iOS 6.1.3 but was also noticed from iOS 6.0 - 6.1.2.
