Applications Won't Update

Hi there, I'm having a problem with updating my applications for my iPod Touch.

Every time I try to update it either says the iTunes store is unavailable and I should try again later or that the network connection timed out.

My iTunes store works normally and I can download paid or free apps, and iTunes says there are 129 updates available.

Are there any solutions for this?

Thanks

PS: These are all legal apps.

In iTunes try updating each app individually instead of all at once.

I've had this happen and lock up, too. My solution, since the apps were in the queue already, is to pause them all individually and then allow one to go at a time. Not fun, but it has worked. It does seem best to update one at a time instead of the "download all updates". Not sure why, but doing it that way causes problems for me.
