Fix when Android Market cannot download

On my G1 running Android 1.6, I started to have problems with the Android Market. Any application that I tried to update or install resulted in an error message saying that the download was unsuccessful.

Luckily with a bit of googling, this is what I did to resolve the problem

1. Open Settings
2. Select Applications

4. Select Market and the select Clear Cache
5. Repeat step 4 and clear the cache for Google Apps, Google Talk and Checkin Service.
6. Restart your phone
