How does one delete the system cache?? I have tried everything but that to get my apps back (Market v 3.1.5) and still no luck!!
Follow instructions at the url below, BUT use the wipe cache partition option, not the wipe data/factory reset!
Sent from my unrooted DroidX using DroidForums app.
I decided to check for updates again on my girlfriend's X. It only lists 4 downloaded apps when there should be many more. This time I didn't have to wipe the cache partition. Instead I force-closed the market, uninstalled the market updates, and cleared the market data or cache (all from phone settings > applications). Then I rebooted. The old market version came up with all of the apps and I was able to update them. In conclusion, I'm not sure how necessary clearing the partition is. It certainly doesn't hurt anything, though.
One more note, you'll need to reset the market settings (market > menu > settings > admob preferences, etc.) if you clear market data/cache.
And I am a bit bummed that the new market version has not fixed this problem. Oh well. I wonder if a factory reset would fix this. I bet it would.

There may be another workaround as described here: market issues on 605 ...
Perhaps this problem has to do with the market using an alternate google account than your main one.
To everyone having this problem: do you have more than one google account set up on your phone?
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a permanent fix yet. However, if it does have something to do with having multiple google accounts, maybe a solution would involve deleting all but one account from the phone and going to the market then re-adding the other accounts. I may try this out later.
I had the same problem, then did a bunch of random clear cach / reboot / force quit / uninstall updates. etc., etc., in everyone combination and the apps eventually all showed up. I wasn't getting switched to my other accounts because I could still see my purchased apps.
Worked for about 2 days then all of sudden today gone again!!
So I removed all other gmail accounts just to see, cleared cache / uninstalled update / reboot, and they are back again but, who knows for how long!!!
