Default Market App (MyApps) suddenly crashes

I have two Galaxy Nexus phones in my household and they BOTH began having the same problem today. When I go to the Market App and choose MyApps, the Market App crashes with the error message "Unfortunately, Market has stopped". Both phones were working fine yesterday. I uninstalled the apps that were installed today and I still have the problem. I even uninstalled the apps that were updated today. I googled for some possible solutions, tried them and still no luck. One of the suggestions I saw was to clear cache and data for the Market app, force close the Market app then uninstall it which reverted the Market app to the factory version, but it did not help.

Any suggestions anyone?

I have resolved my problem, but I am not sure why it happened and I suppose it could occur again in the future. When I had selected MyApps from the Market app, I could briefly see the apps that had updates available, right before the app crashed. I searched the Market for those apps and updated them manually. Once I updated those apps, the Market app stopped crashing. I even received more updates later, and was able to update them through MyApps with no problems.

The market was crashing on mine yesterday as well when I went into my apps.
It was fine after a reboot.

Not sure if this is related but the Market was having tech difficulty for devs too today -- seems they fixed it pretty quickly though
