    Sorry, no problems on my end. Maybe the market is getting hit with everyone trying to grab the update. You can always try rebooting :)

    Same here. Have tried numerous times to install but I just get the "Downloading" message for a few seconds and then "Download Unsuccessful" or the download progress bar doesn't get past something like 4% and then I get "Download Unsuccessful"

    This probably isn't going to add to your frustration, Just downloaded and installed after seeing this thread. No problems.

    Maybe their server is busy with all of the new Eris owners just getting 2.1?

    mine doesn't work either, but i'm sure it has nothing to do with 9,000 Eris users getting a 2.1 update.

    Chances are that the market is overwhelmed with users trying to download the update. Last night I tried to download the update and it took almost an hour to fully download. I know that it was not my connection, because I was able to do everything else (internet, mail, etc) just fine.

    Give it some time and just keep trying. You'll get it sooner or later.

    The Eris users are getting their 2.1 upgrade from Verizon's OTA server, just like we got our 2.1 upgrade.

    The Google Maps 4.2 upgrade is coming from the Google Market ... completely different places.

    I know, but I the update did have GM 4.2. It was the first thing I tried to download this morning after updating the wife's Eris. She is a bit navigationally challenged. I don't think the Eris users could be solely responsible for it, but are contributing.
