Try clearing the cache and data from the Market app.

Go to settings > applications > manage applications > scroll down to the Market app. Select it and press the clear cache button, the clear data button and press the force close button.

Go back to the Homescreen and open the Market app again. Accept the terms and conditions and search for the app you wanted to install and try to download the application again.

Hmmm. You are working with an active wifi connection or 3G connection?

What version of the Android Market is installed on your phone?

When you look at the application information with the clear cache and data button, it will also say what version of the application is installed. What does that say?

That sounds like the current version. Android 2.1 (Eclair) lists their version numbers differently than Android 2.2 and higher.

Try this.
Go to settings > applications > manage applications > scroll down to the Market app. Select it and then press the Uninstall updates button. Agree to uninstall and go to the factory version. Reboot the phone. Once your phone is reloaded, open the Market app. Now you should have the terms and conditions message to accept again. Then try and download a application again.
