On my home screen I see that I have apps that need to be updated. There is the bubble with the number in the top right corner. But when I open the app store and go to updates i see the apps need to be updated for like a second and then they all dissapear. I really need help fixing this cause my apps are getting out of date and some of them are not working with ios7.  Ohh and this problem started after I downloaded ios7.

iPod touch, iOS 6.1.3, iPod touch 5

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Go to Settings>iTuns and App Stores and sign out and sign back in

    - Update the apps in your iTunes libary and then sync

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up                                                                

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
