All my updates have been done, and the free update panel is on my screen but when I start the update, the next panel asks for the credit card information before it will continue with the free update.

It seems like the only way to get the free download is through the App store.

I have never bought anything from the App store and that is probably the reason why I get the credit card panel, however the Mavericks upgrade is free, and I should not have to enter credit card information to get a free upgrade.

Hence , the reason I am asking if there is a workaround for the credit card step.

I suspect not.  The App Store wants the information even if you are downloading free apps.  Others may be more experienced in this issue and have a better answer, but I'm pretty sure you're stuck.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.
