    Hi there, I too have the error 414, which I've had for a very long time. Manually updating of each app seems to be the only way. This problem has existed in so many versions and updates of iTunes that you have to conclude Apple just isn't testing the large volume of app updating (which seems common to all of us) scenario. It's annoying, as the big-spender' problems should come first!

    Hey Everybody.
    I was having the same issue and I came across this articale and it worked for me. I just manually did my +17 apps and then did the rest in bulk download. Maybe it will help!

    It looks like Apple is flagging anything that goes on the internet on your ipod or iphone as over 17. My 2 Apps are:

    Pic2Shop

    Cooliris

    You can go one by one with the Apps you think go online and download their update. When you click on one App and get the "17....." message. it will begin downloading instead of giving you the 'Error 414'. After that update downloads try the 'Download All Free Updates' link again. if you get the '17 ...' message again it means you have another '17...' App to find. Find it by going one-by-one. Then try the Download all button again.

    I guessed 98 times out of 106 one-by-one free updates before I found the second culprit. I hope you fare better than I did.

    Please post your offending Apps up here when you find them.

    I am having the same message. I had to upgrade my apps one by one and that fixed the problem.

    I tried updating those apps I thought would be 17+ and I didn't even think about Pic2Shop which is in my update list. My only problem now is that the update button for Pic2Shop is grayed out on the My App Updates page and I can't update it, which means I stuck updating all 77 apps one at a time. Actually I just click as many of the Get Update buttons as I can before the screen refreshes and then wait until it's done and do it again. Apple should at least put the rating on the My App Updates page so we can know which ones are 17+.

    Opera was the culprit on this latest round tackling the issue. I also manually updated Craigphone.

    I get the message "We could not complete your iTunes Store requests. An unknown error occurred (414)." I get this when I want to create an iMix. Is there a fix for this yet?

    It looks like *it might be both* this error 414 explanation and Certain Apps when updating. I'm thinking those Apps that require online access are creating URLs that are too long when updating via the 'all free updates' button in itunes. That could explain why updating those apps manually, then updating the remaining Apps all at once, avoids the Error 414. It seems Apple will need to take an interest in this error for us to get a true fix.

    I'm not sure the error 414 stating 'a URL that is simply too large.' necessarily means too many bytes. *It's more likely means it has too many characters*.
