The problem: under Android OS applications installed to SD card using Android Market cannot be updated, showing error message.

The solution (found here, thanks to cdore…@gmail.com):

  1. Connect your device to PC.
  2. On your device select Mount or External drive option.
  3. Open your device as a drive in My Computer.
  4. Find folder “.android.secure” or “/mnt/secure/asec/”
  5. Delete file “smdl2tmp1.asec” (L before the 2nd letter and letter 1 after “tmp”).
  6. Try to re-download updates via Android Market.
Hope that helps!
