Hi Andrew, I have the exactly same problem, started last night... i almost did hard reset and then i see that you the same problem on the same day... maybe it's a "Market" issue??
i also have two updates available, and when i try to run the update i get the same "installation error" and the app turn to "free" instead of the "update available", when in fact the app is still there (installed)...

By default, android apps are updated automaticly. Open Play Store, enter in main menu (3 parallel lines on the top left corner of the screen), Choose "Settings" and then choose "Auto-update apps". And then choose "Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only".
The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.
Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:
Android phone Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system USB cable
You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.
The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.
Four popular Android tethering apps are:
PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app. EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone. Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted. Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.
(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)
Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.
Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.
There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!

How do you install apps on Android?
The following applies to any app that you might want to install on your Android tablet.
There are a few ways to go about this. The easiest is, of course, the Android Market itself. But it's quickly finding competition in the likes of the Amazon Appstore. And there are smaller third-party app stores as well, though they haven't necessarily caught on as much as you'd think.
The Android Market
The Android Market is the easiest way to install new Android apps. It should already be installed on your phone or tablet. If it's not, chances are you have one of those (really) cheap Android tablets, and it didn't meet Google's approval. That doesn't mean you can't install new apps, though, and we'll talk more about that in a minute.
Android Market To use the Android Market, you'll need to be signed in with a Google account. Chances are you did this when you first set up the phone. But if not, you can add a Google account to your phone (and even sign up for one at the same time) straight from your phone. Go to Settings>accounts to do so.
Once you're logged in, you'll be able to browser the Android Market, purchase apps, or download free apps. The Android Market also is where you'll update apps you've already loaded. Purchasing apps is done a couple of ways.
One is through Google checkout. You give it a credit card number, and it manages the transactions for you.
Another way is through carrier billing. If you're on Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile you can charge apps to your phone bill.
There are also a couple ways to browse the Android Market. You'll mostly likely do it from your phone. But if you're at a computer, you can browser, purchase and install apps from the Android Market web portal. It's at www.market.android.com.
Fun fact about the Android Market: Once you've purchased an application, you can download it onto as many phones as you have. Need more space on your phone? Uninstall an app and put it back on later if you need it again, at no additional charge. To install from the Android Market on your phone
Choose an app.
To install, tap "Free" (If it's a paid app, you'll tap "Purchase"
You'll be asked to accept permissions -- this shows you what the app can access on your phone. Hit yes, and the app will download and install.
Note: You can cancel a download as it's happening. For paid apps, you can request a refund within 15 minutes. To install apps from the Android Market
Go to market.android.com from a web browser.
Pick an app. Hit the install button.
You'll be asked to accept permissions, and choose which device you want to install on (if you have more than one).
Look over the permissions and hit the install button again. The app will magically be downloaded and installed on your phone.
The Amazon Appstore
A relative newcomer is the Amazon Appstore. It's similar to the Android Market in that you'll have to have an account with Amazon to use it. Unlike the Android Market, the Amazon Appstore likely didn't come pre-installed on your phone, so you'll need to download it.
Once it's on your phone, you can download apps directly from it or, like the Android Market, from a web portal. App downloaded through the Amazon Appstore will be updated through the Amazon Appstore and not through the Android Market.
The following tutorial video will take you through the entire process better than my written words.
Windows MediaPlayer and Quicktime are not available for Android smartphones.
If your phone is capable of running Flash, you can download it from the Android Market using the following steps: - Go to your App Drawer and tap "Market" - Search "Adobe Flash" - Tap the entry for Flash that is authored by Adobe - Tap "Install" and accept the permissions. The app should download and install to your phone automatically.
Your phone needs to be running Android 2.2 (Froyo) to use Flash. Depending on your carrier, your phone may not have the upgrade available yet. To check if an update is available, do the following: - Go to your App Drawer and tap "Settings" - Scroll to "About Phone" and tap it - Tap "System Updates" to check for and install any available updates.
