I've installed friends app 0.1.13 from the Jolla Store. I had it installed before using the rpm file from openrepos. It keeps saying there's an update available and it fails to update (probably because it's already the latest version?) saying "there was a problem with the jolla store". Anything I can do to mask this update ?

Considering it's an app in Jolla Store, not Jolla integrated, maybe try what's stated in the Jolla Store app description:

Please report bugs in this Forum thread: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=92137


Also, as far as I can see, the latest version in Jolla Store is called "0.1.9-1.26.1" - do you somehow have a later OpenRepos version installed, resulting in the weird update alert?

The developer also seems to be commenting on the Jolla Store page, regarding bugs in the app, but not having it installed myself, I am unsure if those comments are related to your problem.

Thanks. On the http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=92137, it actually says "Stable 0.1.13: store :/ I must have messed up installing it previously manually. I've posted on maemo's thread. Cheers !

Just remove it and install again. I had a similar problem and that worked. Didn't even had to enter my FB credentials again.

If I uninstall from the store and then reinstall, the about section says 0.1.13 although the version in the store is 0.1.9 (publihed the 10th of January) but I saw that the dev mentionned on maemo only yesterday that 0.1.13 "will go to the store". So it's probably not ready there ?

Ok, I have 0.1.9 installed fron Store (updated 10.1.2014 15:25). I don't see any section mentioning 0.1.13 ..

If you have a 3rd party repository enabled, and a package in there has a higher version than what is in the store, then installing via the store-client will install the newer version.
