Can't update pre-installed apps !



I bought the HTC One X yesterday and it comes with preinstalled apps (Twitter, Google Maps etc).


I know I can't uninstall pre-installed apps  - I can live with this. Problem is, I can't update them either !


I visit the Google Play Store and find the app, I hit 'update' then 'download and accept'. This gives me  "Error - Your order is processing. Your item will be available in a few minutes".  Then nothing happens.


I can download, install, update and remove new apps without any problem - this seems to only fail with preinstalled apps.


Would be really greatful for any advice. These are core apps I use all the time and many are already out of date. Aside from missing out on new features, I'm potentially missing out on bug fixes and security updates.


Cheers in advance.

Problem solved by holding power button down for 10 seconds and rebooting
