Because of errors while downloading and installing apps from Jolla Store I tried to update the list manually with "pkcon refresh".

During running "pkcon refresh" I get an fatal error and the operation failed. Please take also a look at the picture. image description

The problem was solved in other question because of errors with btrfs. I solved this problem a few weeks ago, so "btrfs fi show" tells me now that "1 size 13.75GB used 10.07GB path /dev/mmcb.."

What else could be a problem for my issue?

You may try resetting the jolla account (delete, register again - on your Jolla). Take care that the internets are accessible while you are registering again (open browser and check or something). If that does not help go offline, delete account, reboot, go online, create account, open store.

I deleted already my phone in "oauth2 applications" in my jolla account on and restarted the phone but nothing has changed. It always gives me an error after 98% of the process.

On your Jolla - the phone - not the website.

Deleting the account on my jolla and logging in with my username does also not help. What does "is ssu set up correctly" mean?

if the SSU branch is setup correctly, what sailfish version are you on?

Please run: "ssu domain sales" and try again.

EDIT: argh, me stupid. Starting with you need to run pkcon refresh with at least privileged rights (devel-su (-p)).

EDITv2: As the release was set to "latest", the correct action was to do "ssu re".

The output is "changing domain from sales to sales" and the problem is still existing

I did that already ;)
Running "ssu domain sales" and / or "pkcon refresh" with "devel-su -p" does not change anything :/

Matl ( 2014-08-22 00:57:45 +0300 )edit

could you do "ssu re" as well and try again with devel-su.
