    You need to unmount your SD card.

    I have to do this when installing some apps or doing some updates.

    If the app was on the SD card, I have to move it back to the SD card after update & mounting the SD card.

    Unmounting the sd card worked. That's weird that I would have to do that all of a sudden. Thanks guys

    I've started 2 threads with this same issue. No one seems to know why this happens. I have to unmount the sd card to install the updates and if I'm using the amazon market I have to do another workaround. Strange.

    If you are using the usb storage mode it wont let you download anything from your phone. I don't know why but thats happened to me as well.

    Actually, just the other way around. If I mount the scard with the usb cable it will update. In other words, a long as the sdcard is not available to the system the apps will update.
