    IPad mini with retina display, after the IOS 8 update every time I reboot my iPad or sometime for no apparent reason I'll get the pop-up. Went and googled it and it seems there are quite a few people experiencing the same problem but no one can figure it out. Some say it is the U2 download causing this, I deleted the U2 album with the Apple directed code. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? My 5S is updated and doesn't have this problem.
    Thanks, Vinny

    Are you still having this issue or has it been cleared up?

    I've got an iPad Air and it's doing the same thing. Hasn't cleared up. Really regretting the ios8 update. Developers didn't seem to test anything before putting it out there.

    Still having problem even after today's update. Weird because I don't get it on my 5S. I googled it and there are many people having the same issue. Was hoping after 8.0.2 it would be cleared up, no such luck. Any input would be welcomed.
    Thank You,
    Vinny

    I am having the same exact issue and I cannot figure out where where it is coming from. It started right after I purchased the movie "A Million Ways to Die in the West" from what I can tell. Maybe a coincidence. The movIe is marked for the cloud only right now. It should not be trying to download it. There are no pending app to be updated. I am removing my Podcast subscriptions to see if one of the stations is having an issue.

    Do any of you have "automatic download" set in the iTunes & App Store setting and/or iTunes Match enabled?

    Just checked those settings and that is a negative, I'm stumped. Thought for sure after the 8.0.2 update I would be all set. If you can think of anything i'll try it.

    Like you, I'm stumped, but hopefully, we'll find the culprit at some point, and hopefully soon...

    Tapatalk was giving me errors a little while ago this morning, but I'm guessing it was on their end because it seems to have resolved itself.

    Saw this via browser for a period of about 15-20 minutes earlier. Obviously, its fixed now.

    I've been getting this same error message on my iPod touch 5th gen. Never got it on any of the betas, but it began to appear with the GM, and continued through 8.0.1 and 8.0.2.

    I feel you. I keep getting the same message since I got the U2 album. I tried switching to another iCloud session, switching the ITunes account, updated to 8.02. Nothing worked.

    When I tap on Settings the phone slows down a bit. Looks like it is always trying to download something and can't figure out what.

    Cheers.

    I too was getting the popup "Unable to download...", it seems to me it might have been an iBook but I was never 100% positive (and I do not have it on my iPhone 5s). Tried a lot of things, even deleting all the local copies of iBooks and it still happened. Based on another forum tip I finally backed up to iTunes, Reset my iPad Air to factory state, and restored. Problem has disappeared. It wasn't that painful to do with iTunes, only about an hour.

    I bet only a reset/restore will take care of it, I think something got corrupted on the device - my .02.

    Thanks for the advice, I was hoping that wouldn't be necessary but if all else fails reset and restore.
    Thanks again,

    Well, I upgraded to the 8.1 beta and haven't seen the issue since on my iPod touch. Hopefully this bodes well for everyone else once 8.1 is released.

    Today I accessed my iTunes account through the computer software and my account was showing there's 1 pending item. I hid the U2 album and all unnecessary apps. Then I went to my phone, closed my account, power-cycled and accessed again. It finally worked, it is not popping up anymore.

    I think the reason why this keeps popping up even after you deleted the songs / when accessing iBooks iss because the U2 album comes with a little PDF booklet. That's why even if you finished downloading / deleted the songs your iTunes account keeps trying to get the pending booklet.

    Hope it works.

    I have a first gen iPad mini, same issue. Except, it doesn't look like it is the U2 album. Instead it tries to download the same three random tv shows over and over even though I stop them and clear them from the itunes que.
