Hi all

I can't update any apps nor get new Sailfish OS updates. My device only says "Ongelma kaupassa" (problem with store). My Jolla account seems to work (can log in using a browser). Can anyone help? I'm still runnig "Saimaa".

I don't have a working SIM card at the moment, could this be the reason? Tried w/SIM too, but no luck. Is this thing totally broken? Nothing left but reset to factory defaults?

Does Warehouse have a similar problem?

If you have access to developer mode, check what the command 'ssu re' tells you.

Can not activate developer mode. "Problem with store" error again.

I can not activate developer mode. I can not install Warehouse client. Always that same problem with store. How do I get the terminal without devel mode?

I'm stuck. Second time now with this device. Last time I did the factory reset. Sigh..

Edit: Tried to get ShellEx. Does not download.

Hi, thanks but it does not help. My question is very likely a duplicate. None of the fixes I have found so far haven't solved my problem. Can not update nor install new apps.

Hi. Ur memory may be full. I could not update on jolla store or update android apps recently as my memory was full. Ialso could not refresh or update software/repos from terminal. I had call recorder installed so memory was full of calls I failed to delete. Also my YTPlayer had videos downloaded. Enter filebrowser abd check you have storage space.

8.6 of 13.7 GB used. I'll try updating after backing up my photos and removing them. There are quite a few of them.. Then I'll remove Android stuff etc one by one. Let's see. Thx for the tip.

Yes! After removing around 1900 pics and vids, about 2.5GB in size, the available updates installed fine. Still unsure of everything works but it looks promising at the moment. Had to refresh app database because of severe problems w/store. I think it was expected in this case.
