    I had this issue last week, the only way I was able to fix it was by updating the app in iTunes, and then plugging my iPhone to iTunes and updating that way,

    Can't update Apps

    How does one update Apps on iTune? I can't update the Apps on my iPhone either. I get a message: "Cannot connect to iTunes Store" even though I can add a new App with no problem.

    had this problem recently

    •iPhoneBrowser or iExplorer

    •You do not need a jailbroken device to do this

    1.Plug your iPod/iPhone/iPad into your computer. You don't need to let it sync

    2.Open iExplore and let it load

    3.Open the directory labeled "Downloads" (On jailbroken devices that should be "/var/mobile/Media/Downloads")

    4.Delete all files in this folder*

    5.Close iExplore and reboot your device

    if its jailbroken just use ifile
