    Exclamation Android Market apps missing - "The requested item could not be found"

    After my 2.2 update, the Android Market has been seriously wonky on my Epic. When I view "My Apps" in the Market and try to click through to any of the apps from there, i get a popup saying "The requested item could not be found". It doesn't happen with ALL the apps, but there doesn't appear to be any clear rhyme or reason as to what's causing this. The apps are all there on my phone and working properly, I just cant' pull them up through My Apps in the Market. This means that I can't update a bunch of my apps, rate them, or do any of the things you do through the Market app.

    Any suggestions? I already tried clearing the cache and data in My Applications.

    Mine took a few days to update. I upgraded to EC05 on 3/26 and my Android Market app didn't full populate all of my apps until 3/30 or 3/31.

    Not sure what the problem was, but it's fine now. If you search for them though, I was able to update them. Interestingly enough, it said "installed" when I found the app - it just wasn't listed in "My apps" for a few days.

    Well, my apps are listed in My Apps. I just can't tap them for more information or to update.

    I am having the same issue. All my installed apps show up when I list "My Apps" in the Market. However, If I press on the app (in My Apps) it does not always list the app details(only around 50% work). I just get "Not Found...The requested item could not be found". It's almost like my apps are out of sync somehow with the Market files. I have cleared the Market App cache, cleared data, uninstalled the Market update and let it reload again. Still, not working. I used the the Odin without wipe update from EB13 to EC05. I was wondering if this could have caused the problem.

    It looks like the market is not working correctly.
    Anybody know for sure?

    NEVERMIND - I cleard cache and data and was able to get it working correctly.

    I'm the OP. I have a stock, unmodded Epic. My Market is still not working correctly after two weeks with Froyo. About 80% of my apps turn up the "Not Found" error when I tap them from My Apps. If there are multiple updates to my apps, I can USUALLY update without problems by tapping "Update All" (although usually one app fails to update correctly). If there is just one app to update, however, I can't do it bc tapping on it returns the "Not found" error.

    This is turning into a serious problem for me. Please don't tell me I have to wipe my phone.... that was always the only answer to problems with my old Palm Pre.

    I also have no problem syncing to AppBrain and bringing up app details from there, However, when I click on the Market from AppBrain I get "Not Found...The requested item could not be found" for various apps. My wifes Epic does not have this problem and I updated both of ours to ECO5 the same way. I can't think of anything else to try. Like Slope says, the main problem is not being able to update apps from the market.

    Exclamation long press -- update -- works!

    I've been having the same problem for a few weeks (aldiko was the first or second app for this to happen to with me). It does seem to be random as to which apps are not found. After a reboot, google maps was found whereas before it wasn't, for example.

    I have just found that while in market, a long push on an app, then selecting "update" is working every time.

    For reference:
    - Xperia X10 (Japanese version)
    - android 2.1
    - rooted with superoneclick
    - I've used "Market Enabler" but I think it was set back to the original location correctly
    - appbrain (though it wasn't used in this round of updates)

    The long press method works for my updates also. Thanks for the tip. I wish there was a real fix for this problem.

    Angry no market feedback/evals, though

    This method does not allow for evaluations of the applications, though. One of my apps, namazu, just gave me a 30-second warning of last night's earthquake, telling the distance and magnitude. When it hit here, I knew how bad it would become and could relax and just observe. Fantastic usefulness.

    However, when trying to give it five starts and feedback, the market said the app was nowhere to be found :-(

    Yup, same thing here. Stock Epic, OTA Froyo update.

    Sometimes searching for the app results in it showing the page when it refuses to display from the My Apps list. Sometimes not though. Seems really random.

    In the Market / Google Play app go to Settings. There is a content filtering pulldown. Check "Show all apps" or "Mature" in order to allow showing all apps.
    The terms used by Google for the maturity settings appear pretty unclear.

    Way to bring that one back from the dead. The last post was from 4/2011, it is now 11/2012, and in the meantime there was another update from 2.2 to 2.3. But certainly good info for anyone just now upgrading their Epic 4g to 2.2
    Sprint Galaxy Nexus [stock for now]
    BB 8130, iPhone 4 8g, iPhone 3g 16gb, Toshiba e800, Palm Tungsten T
    [retired]Epic 4g, BB8330, BB 9670, Samsung Intercept, Katana DLX, Sanyo 8400, HTC Wizard, MPX220, and many others...
