Missing Updates tab in Apps part of iTunes

This is a bit of an esoteric problem and fix, but I didn’t see this documented anywhere else.

I originally deployed this profile to disable the iTunes welcome screen and check for updates, because I didn’t want to bother the user with prompts for updating the iTunes app.
