today I wanted to install 2 apps from the store but they stayed in waiting. After a while I tried to uninstall an app from the launcher and the remorse timer went down to 0. Then…nothing. The app stayed where it was. Only chance to cancel the pending download: reboot the device. After that the app could be removed.

If the pending install is really the reason and there is a dependency, the phone should prevent me from removing an app with a appropriate error message.

Yes, the pending install is the reason. The uninstallation is queued and would be executed next (the package manager can only execute one transaction at a time). Now the question is, why did the installation stay in "waiting"? That's the problem.

The store could have been too busy. On the other hand one of the apps I wanted to install wasn't visible in the store for some time afterwards. Maybe it was revoked while I tried to install. There should be an abort install option. Nevertheless if a queued install prevents an uninstall, the GUI should not allow me to do it or give a hint why it does not work.
