I've had the same issue with com.google.process.gapp force close. Resetting the phone and the reducing the amount of things that I have sync seemed to make it go away.

As far as not being able update the apps, if your rooted you can try looking for the .odex file and deleting that and then try to uninstall and re install the app. I use to have the same issue and that seem to work for me. Good Luck hope this helps.
