I had this same problem today.

easiest workaround I've found, is to uninstall the apps, make sure you mark down somehow what you own.. you'll need this list..

reboot the computer, load the app store, download the apps again.

it should download the app with no problem.

load the app as you would normally and have a nice day.

In addition to what xraiderv1 suggested, you could try installing one by one (un-tick the rest leaving only one ticked).

in my case, doing things one by one didnt really work all that well, so I had to use the uninstall/redownload method, but as brummyfan suggested.. it may or may not work, depending on your own unique circumstances.

of course it could be high server demand.. cause I just updated all my games apps, and both news and weather apps.
