I'm not able to install any android app through the yandex store after the latest sailfish update: does this happen to anyone else? Any ideas about possible workaraounds?

After more than half an hour it installed opera mini (via wifi), but with dolphin browser there's no way, it keeps on saying "downloading" but it never starts.

Tried restarting the device once more after the update? I had problems starting up some android apps after the update but all worked fine after I rebooted the phone.

I restarted the phone, now I've retried to download dolphin browser: the download seems to start but at a certain point it restarts itself and never completes. It reaches 20% or 69% or whatever else and than restarts again and again.

Very strangely now it has installed dolphin browser after something like 20 times the download was restarting itself...don't know what to say! I'll try with some other apps and let you know...

Try using 3G instead of Wifi. Many of my Android apps tells me there is no internet connection when I'm connectet to my own wlan at home...
