It will update on its own. As I've seen so far it will update automatically without the need of you having to do anything but just simply using the phone.

Try this:

Main menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Menu Button > Filter > All > Market > Uninstall Updates > Open the Market Application.

Thanks! Ok, I've done that. Android Market looks slightly different but still cannot download or update apps. Is there any chance I turned off updates/automatic updates for my phone somewhere?

That shouldn't matter, however it is odd that this has not resolved the issue. In this circumstance i would have to advise that you run a software update to resolve this problem:

Don't worry, the Market will update itself to the Play Store.
