"Application not available" for every application I try to download

I'm hoping this is an easy one...

 

I have a Lumia 710 with the latest software. I reinstalled the OS on my laptop, and reinstalled Zune. I connected my Lumia and change the sync partnership type from Guest and everything looked OK.

Since then, when I connect to the App Marketplace and irrespective of what application I select, I get the message "Application not available. This might be because your phone software needs to be updated..." message.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this?

 

Thanks a lot for your help,

Iain

If you go to Microsoft store on your PC and you sign in with your Microsoft account you should be able to select apps and install them to the phone without the need of Zune. If this works and you can also install apps directly on your phone I'd contact Microsoft Store Support for further assistance.

I'll try installing via my PC, and contact Microsoft Support if necessary.

I still haven't had a chance to try via my laptop (Christmas shopping/young family, etc), but, I happened to try again today, and everything is working again! No changes to the phone at all. Mysterious...

Microsoft were having issues with their Marketplace. Nothing to do with your phone or settings at all. It has probably been resolved by the sounds of it.
