This problem seemed to start when I was unable to pay my Apple bill. As is usual, the App Store wouldn't allow me to download apps and updates but I signed out my account and then back in and all of my pending app updates disappeared and in the Purchased section, it showed all of my apps as Not Installed in the way of it displaying the iCloud icon rather than Open button. I figured this was due to my Apple bill being unpaid so I forgot about it. Now at the end of the month when I was again able to pay my bill, I did so and yet my apps are all still showing as Not Installed, I should note though, that my apps are installed, available on my springboard and are usable. So I signed out my AppleID and signed back in but still no change.
I can just go through my Purchased list and press the iCloud button and it again recognises that the app is actually installed and then displays the Open button, but, I have maybe 300 apps installed on a Purchased list of over 1,000 apps so this would be a real pain.
Is there any better way for me to reconfigure these apps so they return to normal state? Preferably without me having to restore my phone, I'm jailbroken on iOS 7.0.3

Try a hard reset. Hold both the top button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears. Then release. Anything beyond that might be more trouble than tapping the clouds manually. Just do 25 per day, and it won't seem so bad. I've never seen this issue before.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately that didn't make a difference. It is quite a strange one, I wasn't able to find anything like it on Google or the Apple Support forums

You could try Reset All Settings or do a factory restore, but I would just manually do them in your purchased list. A few each day until they're done. I would have sent iTunes an email. But they probably would have referred me to tech support. It'll be tedious and time consuming, but you'll get it done. Good luck!
