Hey guys,
I've had an annoying problem withe downloading and updating apps for sometime now and its becoming a pain in the ****!
When I try to download an app from the HP App Catalog I get a message in the top right of the screen saying

"Download Failed",

and a small window in the top right saying

"Not Enough Storage to Download
You must clear space on your drive before you can download

I have 8.1GB of the total 16GB storage so this message clearly doesn't have anything to do with space.
When I click instructions it just says "unable to process request, sorry, we are unable to process your request. Please try again" in the help app.
I'm running HP webOS 3.0.5 and I haven't got preware or anything on it as I like the Touchpad as it is.

Has anyone had this issue, do you know how to fix it?
Any help is much appreciated =D

My var is cleaned out and I'm having the same problem.
I had to start daily rebooting again and when it starts up I get the update message and then the download failure etc. I can't even update in Preware.
