    "Installation Unsuccessful" on almost all apps

    I've been having this problem for weeks now and it seems to be getting worse -- I can't install any apps on my Nexus One.

    I'll update apps both manually as individual apps or through the 'update all' option and it'll start downloading everything, get to the end and finish downloading, then go into "installing ... (whatever app)" then it pops up an error saying, "Installation Unsuccessful." This is happening to all sorts of apps, all different sizes, even Google-created apps including Google Maps and Google Listen. It's rooted with Cyanogen 6.

    I've dug around the forums and tried these suggestions to no avail:
    + Removing apps to clear up space (maybe its a memory problem?)
    + Moving all possible apps to SD (memory problem?)
    + Clearing the download manager cache and rebooting (some fluke/error in the download manager?)
    + Clearing about 2 gb on my sd card (again memory clean up?)
    + Unmounting and re-mounting the sd card (some fluke/error on the card?)

    I'm pretty frustrated. Anyone have any other suggestions on how to fix this?

    Sorry I can't help. There's 1 app that does that for me all the time... I've tried deleting the APK and restarting but I can't even delete it. Fortunately for everything else, installation is trouble free. But I'd love an answer to this as well.

    There's a bit of discussion on the nightlies about this, some think it's the latest nightlies (221 and 222), some think the market is having a bad weekend...

    Probably not much help, but you're not alone, and I'm sure there will be a fix...

    Thanks for the tip. I just tried it and got a force close on the market. Then an error -18 when trying to finish the installations (no installations successful).

    My problem app (Google street-view for maps) now installs. Perhaps it was a temporary market issue. I run CM6.0

    Nope. Still have 44 apps that have updates available but I just get the same errors.

    Is this a Cyanogen 6 issue only? So if I install a different ROM it shouldn't be the same problem?

    Not being able to install or update apps pretty much makes this phone useless / the equivalent of a feature phone. I can't believe they released Cyanogen with so many people having these problems and there's no solution.

    FWIW, I'm on CM6 and installed 4 updates today. Considering the hardware is the same and the OS is the same, it's got to be some application you've got that's interfering or something.
