    Default Apps doing "double-updates"

    So I've had this going on for a while actually, maybe as long as I've had the phone, but never thought much of it which is weird but whatever I figure maybe someone here knows whats going on..anyway:

    VERY often when my apps get updates from the market, I will let them update, and within a few hours they will show up again in my market as update available as if I never updated, even though its the same update. It happens with all sorts of them, from Maps to games to Flash updates to even Superuser. I would say anywhere from 70-90% of the time I download and install an update, I have to do it twice. No idea why. Always a couple hours apart. Like I said its been going on for as long as I can remember, doesn't bother me and hasn't hurt anything that I can tell, but I figure its got to be some easy fix..

    Any suggestions?

    I suggest rebooting the phone after installs.

    Make sure they are on the phone memory and not the media.

    I've had the same thing happen with some apps, can't explain it.

    I noticed the same thing today for 5 or 6 apps that were recently updated. all mine are on phone memory.

    This is an issue with the new market as far as I can tell. It never happened on my x before the new market came out, but did after. Now it does it on my bionic. And its nothing to do with the media area app bug.

    Thanks for responses but I don't think we cracked it yet:
    a) I shouldn't have to reboot the phone every time I update an app right? Lol that sounds ridic.. I don't imagine many others do that? For those who don't, do you have this issue also?
    b) I always check that apps are on phone memory, not media area, since I figured out that the media area apps vanish randomly. Also only newly installed apps might wind up in media area, my issue happens with app updates, and they are always in phone memory already
    c) Maybe it has to do with the new market.. but I'd like to hear that the same thing is happening to everyone else if that's the case..?

    Also FWIW, the issue was happening since I got the phone, and a week or so ago I did a complete system wipe when I was flashing the ROM I'm currently on, and the issue remains there, so wiping/factory reset did nothing to stop it from happening either.

    I appreciate the ideas.. keep em coming, lol.. its so silly I feel there has to be something that will stop these annoying double updates... any other ideas out there?

    Do you have the automatic update checked for your apps? This can cause issues - or I should say it's caused issues in the past such as bricking the phone on the DX. If there is an auto-update checked, try un-checking it and doing it manually when you get a notification in the panel. Haven't had this issue myself (yet), so this is just a suggestion.

    Personally, I don't do a battery pull after each update, but I will if there's been a bunch. BTW, I tried the "Button Battery Pull" yesterday and it does work. Sure a lot easier to do than the physical battery pull and (of course) easier on the back of the phone's lifespan. Button Battery Pull = push power and both volume up/down buttons, hold until screen black and keep holding until lock screen re-appears. Bionic buzzes like crazy before going black, but eventually does what you want.

    EDIT: Discovered the Bionic comes up in vibrate only mode after such a reboot. So, check the home sreen and slide the "vibrate" icon so the speaker shows. Weird, but it's happened each time. Not sure if it's user error at this point.
