I don't know for sure what the original problem was, but the most recent issue was a result of implementing a new badge without rebuilding the API. Once the API was pushed to production, the bug was resolved. If it happens again (especially if there's a new badge) please let me (or really any employee) know. We can contact a developer directly. From a ...

The Informed badge is removed from the "Next badge" tracking. Previously it was listed in the Available badges section. Now it is not available under the Available or Bronze section. So the bug has been fixed recently. Screenshot for reference: Copied from the MSE answer

I agree it is weird that you get teased for a badge you're unable to earn. It is worth mentioning that Stack Apps is a bit special as a Question and Answer site within the Stack Exchange family of sites. We are more an "app store" then a proper Q/A site.

Side note: It's not documented, but apparently tag-based badges are not listed unless they have been awarded at least once. Take a look ...

On Code Review we have people getting the Generalist Badge, but the app says we only have 38 tags that qualify, could you do some updating of that for us please?

As a more involved alternative, there is a dedicated endpoint for retrieving reputation changes - /reputation. It returns a list of Reputation objects, each having a post_id and reputation_change field.

Badges and new privileges are part of the /notifications method, which is a single call for all accounts across the network. The results show whether the notification is unread or not. There's also a separate method just for unread notifications: /notifications/unread. For reputation changes, all I know are some site-specific methods (/me/reputation, /me/...
