I just got the same problem on my iPhone 3G after trying to update Skype. I was logged into UK account and it came up with the usual [Account not valid for store] message, instead of opening the proper store as usual and allowing me to login with US account, the app store just started redirecting to itunes. And the update was stuck. After 2 reboots I was able to use Skype again, but the App store is still broken. Tried the same thing with logining in and out, but can't get to the store with my UK or US account. Did a resync to the computer as well and same issue, contemplating a restore now....
Did the restore and all is well now.
Steps to take...
1. Perform backup, (right click / control click on device in iTunes and select from popup)
2. Press restore button in iTunes for device
3. After restore select the recent backup to reload device.
Once it's all sync'd it should be fine, my guess is that something corrupted the firmware.
