Finally, my intex aqua fish has arrived and everything is nice. But the jolla store misses some apps compared to my jolla 1.

The only visible apps in the store are Microsoft Exchange, Weather, Notes and Calculator. But it does not list apps like Calendar, Email, Media, Document, Clock and Aliendalvik. These apps are installed by default, but they are neither shown in "My Apps" nor in the store in general. I am not sure whether I would get any notification about an update? Still, I can uninstall the apps through the launcher and install via pkcon.

Any ideas what might be the issue? I tried resetting the device but the problem persisted. I also tried adding the customer-jolla repo instead of the customer-intex repo but this did not help either (btw. does anyone of you know how to list all packages in a specific repo?). Updating to (early access) also does not help.

Can I have question how you updated your Intex to early access build please? I'm just newbie to SailFish and I'm still learning, but I would like to use builds from Jolla and not from Intex, because I'm afraid of installation Intex blobs after each OS update :P Just where should I search for such wiki or manual ;) Thank you ;)

@tom.i: No need to update, as you do not get blobs from intex, neither with nor Your repositories, from where the packages are loaded, still point to the domain (comparison with Jolla 1). There are some differences as for hardware adaption, a different sailfish-eas (not sure what that is) and a customer-intex repo, which hosts some packages regarding partnerspace, some configuration, preinstalled ambiences, tones and browser favorites as well as this weird sms-activation service. Otherwise, it is the same.

Mainly, I feel uncomfortable with the aliendalvik which I get on the aqua fish, as it comes pre-installed with google play services and maybe more?

Still, if you want to try you need to enable dev mode and then:

I'm facing the same problem. I have Intex aqua fish from which I removed the intex stuff. I never used Jolla Store much but today when I used it after a long time, I noticed that there were no apps in the store. All the sections like games etc are empty. I cannot search for apps either and under "My Apps" there is only one entry which is Sailfish Utilities. Is there a way to fix the store?

Those apps are updated with the system upgrade, so in general there isn't update notifications for those. And usually preinstalled applications are not uninstallable, and thus not available in store for installation.

But seems that there has been some kind of confusion in this case. We will check this and make the apps available and installable in store.

To list packages you can use zypper. You'll need to install zypper if not done already.

All available packages:

zypper pa  <repo name/number>

Installed packages:

 zypper pa -ir <repo name/number>

You could try updating your Jolla account credentials to fix store. Settings/Accounts/Jolla... pull down menu.

Thank you!

I also tried the credential update and even created a new account. But this did not change anything.

Looks that the package is missing in my Intex :( Repo-list has been disabled after unpacking Intex from package, and now it's missing in my repo-list. Can I find that repository somwhere and add it to repo-list?

Try typing the following command in the console (developermode enabled): pkcon refresh

Sadly, it does not help.
