    My wife has a stock droid 2 and when she tries to update some apps the update fails. For instance both angry bird apps and a few others, it will download 100% but then fails to install. I've cleared the cache from the apps and cleared the market as well but that didn't help. Any thoughts on this problem?

    Are those apps, by any chance, on the sdcard rather than the phone internal? May have to move them if so.


    Good luck.

    They were on the sd and I moved them to the phone with no luck.

    No dice. Tried pulling battery and all. She says sometimes she get an "error 18" message or just a installation "unsuccesful installation" message.

    Yep, the poster above is right:

    Error 18

    [FONT=&quot]I was reading on a Cyanogen board and encountered a thread about this error code. Here's the solution they came up with:

    (credit ch33kybutt)

    So whenever you run into the "Unknown Error -18" issue, here's the simple workaround ...[/FONT]

    1. [FONT=&quot]'Settings'[/FONT]
    2. [FONT=&quot]'SD Card & phone storage'[/FONT]
    3. [FONT=&quot]'Unmount SD card'[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=&quot]Install app (from Market or adb push install)[/FONT]
    5. [FONT=&quot]go back to settings and 'Mount SD card'[/FONT]
    _________________________________________________________________________________

    Per Tillyswilly:

    if you delete the “.android_secure” folder off the SD card that will fix it all together and you wont have 2go2 the unmount everytime.....1 drawback is you might have to reinstall some apps i had to reinstall about 15 but now it downloads all the apps just fine
