    Anyone having problems with the marketplace today?

    Last night I used the developer SDK trick to change the default location of app installation to the sdcard, and moved a few apps manually using /settings/applications/manage applications.

    Immediately after, I went onto the market to check for updates.
    When I clicked on the downloads tab it listed my apps, but no updates were available.

    however, this morning when I go to the marketplace, it all seems to work ok, I can browse apps and have installed a new one ok, but if I go to the downloads tab, all I get is a error message popup that says:

    "A server error has occured.
    Retry or cancel and return to the previous screen."

    with OK and CANCEL buttons.

    I'm sure it worked ok last night, but now i'm parranoid that I have broken something by moving my apps to SD? (I didnt move anything system related as far as I know.)

    I'm getting the same error so looks like it's not something you've done! It'll hopefully be sorted soon

    If you keep pressing 'Retry' you will eventually get through to your downloads.
    Could take 5 times or 20.

    I got through after about 5-6 tries.

    Still don't know why it's a problem.
