Why wont my Droid x install updates or apps over 3g or wifi?

I have researched to restart it, which it does on its own a couple times daily =(, I have taken out the battery, I have cleared the cache, I have assured they are on the phone and not the SD card...I have done everything so far but it will not install any updates or any new apps...I have the room available too. Please help!!! I love my droid but this is frustrating.

It just keeps trying to download then I get the orange triangle with the exclamation point in it. Thats it. Then from there it just continues to try to download with no success. I end up having to stop it.
