After updating to aptoide app store was uninstalled. I have then manually reinstalled it. It is shown in the installed apps inside the Jolla Store but there is no icon in the launcher

I've got an update for Aptoide in the Jolla store shortly after upgrading. App works as before for me at least.

But I haven't checked whether it has been available just after upgrading to

Try to uninstall, reboot, install. Maybe it helps.

PHONE update issue: I had Aptoide AppStore - app installed but it disappeared from Phone. Installed it again from the store and it works. Apps installed from "old" store did not appear in the "new" store so I unistalled old apps and installed them back from new store. Not sure if this was needed but did it just in case.

TABLET update issues: I had Aptoide AppStore - app installed. Then it appeared again to Store. Tried to install that again so I had two "Aptoide AppStore's" installed into my tablet? Removed the earlier installe one and I guess that's ok?

FWIW I updated to yesterday and the Aptoide app is still there, so I cannot confirm this bug.

I also had an issue with Aptoid. After updating to the Jolla store said there was an update available. I installed this and it downloaded and appeared to install correctly but the icon kept spinning.

I've uninstalled via the Jolla store and re-installed and now it appears fine.

What's up with this issue? My Aptoide is still gone since installing the app update. Installing or reinstalling does have no effect on anything, it is gone!

After a bunch of poking around, I saw some indication that the .apk file for Aptoide might simply be stuck in the wrong location. Most .apk files seem to belong in /data/app, but the .apk file for Aptoide was lying around in /data/app/incoming and /data/app/packaged. I moved one of these to /data/app (don't think it mattered which), and all of a sudden the Aptoide icon reappared in my programs list. It seems to be working normally now.

I also used this technique to repair the Yandex store, which got into the same state as Aptoide when I uninstalled and reinstalled Alien Dalvik in the process of trying to sort this issue out.

Thanks to all, I can confirm that uninstalling and then reinstalling it solves the problem
