    check to see what the date on your phone is...i had the same problem in CM6 because somehow, it was showing the year 1980 under settings date and time. It just popped up there even though I had checked to use network provided values...i changed the date and all was well with the apps installing from the market. Good Luck

    Good ideas from all

    Don't know if you wipe all before flashing, but if you have problems that would be first choice. Plus reboot maybe first, think you did that.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just checked and it's set up for today. :\

    I don't have a microSD card reader -- I didn't know those even existed -- but formatting/whiping the disk should do the same thing right?

    Actually, I think this first step of this process suggested here seems to be working! I really would prefer not to wipe/format my SD, I have tons of stuff on there and I remember last time I did it it took a month to get everything back in place and set up (Yes, I use Titanuium, but that only does about 70%).

    So far at least on 3 apps I've tried, if I manually move apps back to the phone, then update them, they'll install! Then I have to go back and move them to the SD (and anytime I want to update do the same process..)

    Needless to say, if this is the fix, this is a RIDICULOUS process to update and has really made trying to enjoy new/updated apps a huge pain in the butt. I really hope the Cyanogen team finds a real solution quick.

    The link danger-rat posted (Fixing "Unknown reason 18" market error - xda-developers) worked for me and I had this exact problem. Basically, move all your apps from the SD card to your phone (this was a major pain for me as I had to delete a bunch of apps to make space) and then delete the .android_secure folder in the branch directory of the SD card. You don't need a microSD card reader, just connect your phone to a computer with a USB cable and mount the SD card so you can access it as a drive from the computer. Also you will need to set your computer to be able to see hidden folders.

    You can also use estrongs file manager from the phone (set to see hidden files).

    Another option is to just move the app you're trying to update to the phone, then unmount your SD card before updating. Remount SD card when done, and move app back to SD...
