Failed Updates

Member

So this is the first time I've encountered a repeating of this issue that a simple reboot couldn't fix.

 

My apps market is notifying me of multiple updates needed for Applications.  Normally I don't have these issues but suddenly now I can't even get one update to download.  It claims that it starts but then I get the Orange Triangle ! icon stating that it failed to DL properly.  I've cancelled the update and tried again.

 

Does anybody have ideas??

 

Droid X w/ most recent Software update.

There's two things you can Try. 1. a System Cache Clear , or the more Thorough Fr Factory Reset especially if you have not done any in the past updates There are Post on here showing How to do them Both but if bothers you to Do this Call Teck Services Later this Morning an they'll assist you thru it... Or you can take your phone to the Store an they can do a Fr there for you as Well. With the issue's your haveing i'd say this is your best Salution. Give it a Try an good Luck. B33  :smileyhappy:

Just experienced the same thing with my original Droid.  I think a hiccup happened in the market which is making the Market app think there are updates but there aren't.

 

Not sure if the menus are the same on the Droid X but here's what I did to fix it on my Droid.  From the home screen:

 

Menu Button > Settings > Applications > All > Market > Clear Data.

 

When you open the market app again you'll have to agree to the terms of service again, but afterwards everythings should be kosher.

Not sure what's been happening lately ... this entire week Market has been very very flakey for me.  I'll try to UPDATE apps and they just go into the "LOADING" phase an don't download. I've cleared Cache for Market, rebooted, etc ...  it just seems to be having issues this week -- at least for me.

Droid upgrade to 2.3.3 sucks! I had to uninstall Words with Friends because it burnt my battery up after the upgrade. Now I'm trying to download it again and NOTHING DOWNLOADS. Not a single app. It just goes to "downloading" and stays there for days with no results. I've tried clearing the data. That did not work. I guess I too will be paying my Verizon store a visit and getting in line.

Is Droid 2.3.4 or 2.3.5 available? If so, maybe upgrading further might fix my 2.3.3 issues.

nope... 2.3.3 is the latest update for the X

 

The market has been having problems this week. I hope that they might have it fixed now, because I had 2 updates this morning work just fine without the problem with getting stuck at 'loading'

Thanks to the community for your replies.

 

It's very unfortunate to have application errors like those that have been described on this forum. I have run across this from time to time due to applications reacting strangely with different applications downloaded. 

 

Normally clearing the Cache like peabodyman described will clear the issue but sometimes a hard reset may be needed to fix the issue. Please make sure you have your device is backed up with Gmail prior to performing the hard reset.

 

I'm confident these steps will resolve the issue. Please let me know if that helps, if not I would be happy to try some other things with you.

 

Thank you
