Some weeks ago, my App Manager (OS2007, N800) suddenly started to tell 
me it was "unable to refresh the list" when I clicked on Check for 
Updates. It rapidly downloaded something and then said "Unable to 
refresh list. Last refreshed list is shown."

It's the kind of error that sounds like a permissions or space problem 
(although I have loads of space and I've never been anywhere near any 
permissions -- that I'm aware of).

Unfortunately, it doesn't say what list it was trying to update, or 
where it is, or why it had a problem with it, so I have no way to 
conduct a further diagnosis.

Until this point, it was all working fine, and all installs and upgrades 
functioned as expected. Even now, I installed the Mauku Twitter client 
OK, after clicking through assorted error message about not being able 
to update and refresh things.

Has anyone any idea where to start?
