last thursday I installed /e/os on a new Gigaset GS290. It worked all well, I did some configuration changes like allow flipping the display etc., I set up emails, activated Advanced privacy and installed four apps via the App Lounge. I also received and installed the OS update from 25.07.2022. Haven’t done much more yet. There is still no SIM card installed, all internet access is via WIFI.
This morning I wanted to install other apps to finally move from my current phone to the new one and leave google behind but the App Lounge kept being blank and after a while said (in German:) “Zeit abgelaufen beim Holen von Apps. Gewisse Netzwerkfehler verhindern das Holen der Apps”. This translates to: “Time expired during fetching of apps. Certain network errors prevent the fetching of apps”. Below this message it said (but I did not take note of the exact words) that I should try to change settings to only search for open source or pwa apps. I did it but with no success.
Internet does work fine for emails, browser and the apps I installed. Just for a test I switched off advanced privacy, I rebooted the phone twice, but now there is not even an error message anymore, App Loungs now simply stays blank. I checked a few times during the day and waited until tonight, kind of hoping there is a server issue and it’s not related to my phone but… unfortunately it looks like a problem on my end…
What may I have done incorrectly? What might be the cause? What can I do to get it working again? Any suggestion is highly appreciated as I currently wouldn’t know what else to do or try, except maybe a new installation of /e/os and hoping the problem won’t come back…
I’m compeltely new to /e/os and still trying to find my way through it. So thanks for your patience
