AppLounge Updates stuck?

Since about the end of December I am unable to update the Feeder app. It seemes that, after an failing download in the AppLounge’s Updates view the button which normally says “update” now only says “install” and when I press it it changes to “cancel” but nothing happens. The AppLounge still shows me daily notifications about those new updates. I thought I wait for the next update and it may recover, but this was not the case. Unfortunately meanwhile I also experience the same with OsmAnd~. I know I probably could just uninstall and reinstall those apps but this is really cumbersome! Any suggestions about how to fix it? I guess it is probably a corrupted download cache or similar, but I am not really familiar with Android so I do not know where to start debugging that problem :frowning:

edit: Clearing the cache via settings > apps & notifications > app info > app lounge > storage & cache > clear cache did not help either

I can confirm this for my device as well.
A whole list of apps that are not updated.

I have the same problem, I can’t update any app from AppLounge, it always appears “retry” and it happens the same when I want to install a new app.

One option is you can try downloading the latest App Lounge apk’s

I updated to the latest stable version (from 2.4.4 to 2.4.6), but the problem remains.

Will this ever be successfully fixed or answered? Is this even the right place to bring this problem here? I am really uncertain about what to do!

could you quote your current e/OS version? [HOWTO] Give complete /e/OS version info easily for support, answers, comparison etc

Sure, /e/ OS version is: 1.8.1-r-20230204257076-stable-emerald, the model is a Teracube 2e.

the f-droid sourced apks stall for me too in AppLounge. It’s not related to a token pool to talk to the gplay api. I see some failing request… → follow this: App Lounge auto update gets stuck again (#6693) · Issues · e / Backlog · GitLab

Edit: workaround is AppLounge storage and cache purge, you’ll reach this via Settings → Apps

This works for me: Go to “Settings”, “Apps & notifications”, “App Lounge”, “Storage & cache”, “Clear storage”, “Delete app data?”, Ok. Then restart your phone. App Lounge update should now work again :smiley:

I have had the same problem for many versions of eos/applounge. It has gotten better for a couple of updates now. So it is getting better at least :slight_smile:
I hope that this helps.

Yes, this solved it for me. Thanks to all of you!!
