    Repeat Update Install

    Same problem for me too. Did some updates last evening that seemed to work, but that was only one time.

    this is only happening to me with " Ghosts'N'Goblins " but it IS irritating. I have let it update 4 times now. I gave up.

    What are the Apps you are having a problem with, maybe we can pin piont the problem. Like if they were all released the same time.

    This has been happening on occasion for me since 2.0 was released. It seems to go in phases- it will last for a day or a couple of days, then be fine for a few months. It's been happening for the past couple of days for me. It *just* stopped right now, literally 5 minutes ago, with the last app update. It's very annoying, and very sloppy on Apple's part. There's no excuse for this kind of ostensibly very simple problem to fix to remain OS version after version. The app store app can't figure out that if I have xyz 1.1.2 installed, I don't need to install 1.1.2 again?

    Same here, I have to install most app updates 3/4 times before they work.

    I use to get that a long time ago every once in a while. Restarting the phone always fixed it for me. You definitely don't need to re-download the app. As long as it is updating, just let the notification sit there. It will go away eventually.
