Right now the native app "Ohm" in Jolla store produces an update error. Immediately after installing the store tells my there is an update available, but its not possible to update. Deleting and reinstalling does not solve this. I hope Jolla is fixing this soon. But maybe the user can fix this (temporarily) by itself?

Is is possible to exclude a app from update notification?

Or at least to get rid of the update notification?

Where is the information of installed apps stored on my phone and how can I edit this?

This might help in future, if you just don't want to update to a newer version, because newer is not always better, without being notified all the time.

In addition it would be nice to be able to downgrade to older versions.

I also miss this feature and there ALSO should be the possibility to delete the Update notification from the events screen.

The updates already take place only if you manually start them.

This is, of course, good, but being able to clear the update notification for all/specific apps is something I also miss.

I think beside the bug you describe it would be good to have an option to ignore updates so the notification disappears
