    I have a bunch of apps that needs updates, but every time i try to update them it comes up unsuccessful. anyone have any idea of what the problem is?

    I've used my task killer to close out apps in case that is the problem, but that didn't solve anything.

    I've rebooted the phone countless times, and still no fix

    I've fixed the permissions a few times in the ROM Manager, and still no fix.

    Please, please get rid of the task killer. That's not helping at all.

    Then after you do that go into your settings/applications/manage applications/all applications/Market. Clear both Data and Cache. That should fix it for you.

    I get the same if I try to update a themed app I installed via update.zip. Would this be the case?

    I'm currently having this problem and running BB 6.2.1 and it did it on CM 6.1.2

    Although when i switched to BB it let some of them download. I tried wiping data/cache in market app and doesnt help.

    I currently can't update Babo Crash Deluxe and Radiant. There's a few others but I'm at work and can't use phone at the moment to see what others are.

    if they're not system apps, i think (and i'm going from memory here) that there may be an issue with some apps updating on a rom built from the latest source.

    I don't know if you read my post earlier but if i click on the unsuccessful installation notification it takes me to the market and say "unknown reason -18."

    I tried googling it myself with no luck. Any idea how I can find out what "-18" means?

    I'm currently using Cyanmod rom, rooted. I think I'm gonna get rid of this ROM though. BB was way better. i've been having so many issues with this stupid rom.

    I've gotten that error code 18 a few times too.
