Hi, I am trying to install MeeCast. It seems that it has downloaded correctly, but then it stays forever in the "installing" state. In "Own Applications" it shows the circling wait thinggie and also in the store it shows "installing." This also blocks other applications that I want to install, since it seems that it first has to go through MeeCast before going to the next one. Only one or a few reboots gets the Jolla Store application to work ignoring MeeCast. T

Did it resolve itself? It happens occasionally to me too (it could be any app involved). I just assumed it was a server problem at Jolla store as it always resolve itself after a while.

Also, if you have updated an app via Openrepos, Jolla store will ask you to update due to different version comparing to the one in store. If you then press the update, the app will stall (it used to stall the whole time before system update in January)

No, it did not. I can get rid of the eternal installing status by restarting the jolla store, but I will not have the application installed. And if I go to my applications from the store, it will show it to me as on the "waiting" to be installed list.

Then I have no other idea besides trying to reinstall everything (back to factory setting)

Thanks, that seemed to do the trick with this application. Hopefully it also works with the next ones :)
