    I have an HTC desire Z

    It frequently tells me that there are updated for my applications - and I go into the Market icon and it lists ten of my apps requiring updates.

    I click "update" and then it just sits there - with the icon showing Downloading. But it never downloads these updates!

    any idea how I stop it sticking at updates.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    This usually happens to me if I have a weak cell signal or when the phone is doing something I am not aware of in the background. Try turning on the WIFI, if you have it and try to update using it.

    I've been having the same problem recently. Rather than using the update all function, if you go into each app on the market and use the update button in there it seems to get round the problem.

    Me too. I have to go to each app, click cancel, then click update for it to work manually for each app.
