    Default 3 apps show updates available but won't update

    I have 3 apps that are showing updates, but when I attempt to update it shows unsuccessful. I have a good strong signal with no issues doing anything else data wise.

    Apps are:

    MyYearbook
    ATK
    Toutier (or however you spell it - twitter app).

    I tried uninstalling them but now I can't install them again.

    I restored from a NAND backup but still am having issues.

    This is on a Galaxy Vibrant.

    Anyone else seeing anything similar?

    Thanks!

    Give them time, few hours. This happens when the dev submits the new update, but it's not fully pushed to the servers yet.

    Do you have enough space on your internal memory? I found that if you don't then they won't update.

    After the first restore didn't fix I did a wipe and restore which fixed the problem. I'm guessing something in my cache was hosed.

    Oh, and I'm showing 1.54GB application storage available, so I'm leaning even more now towards it being my cache that was borked.

    Unless someone else can offer another possible explanation?

    So how would I go about cleaning out my cache? I'm having the same issue with my HTC Evo. I have about 15 apps that are in the update queue, but aren't downloading. It's been weeks and still nothing!

    You don't need a paid app to clear your Market cache.

    I have a similar problem. Shows updates but when I go to it in the market the option is "open" not update. Google+ is currently in that status.

    I've noticed that when that happens the update will usually show up within an hour or so so check back. If it continues to be a problem follow my instructions above to wipe your Market data.
