[F-Droid app] No thumbnails / Can't install an app

client

#1

Hi,

App logos, screenshots… I sometimes have no images at all.

Moreover I can’t install the Simplemobiletools app called “Clock”. F-Droid doesn’t show the Install button.
When I open the Version section, there’s an Update button. If I press it I get a popup saying that the new version is signed with a different key… I don’t have this app on my device!

Clearing F-Droid cache doesn’t help.

Update to 1.4, clean app DATA, resetup sync settings and repos (if any), retest :wink:


#3

It’s like a factory reset lol
Do you confirm it’s fixed on v1.4?


#4

yup: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/issues/1433


#5

Actually I already have v1.4 so I’ll clear the app data. Thanks.


#6

Just btw., “GitLab” is where we’re (all) moving to, after Micro$oft’s (ugh.) acquisition of GitHub? o.0


#7

No, I dunno, each at his own volition, F-Droid is on Gitlab… not sure it was ever on Github.


#8

After clearing app data, the installation issue with Simple clock is fixed but still no images…


#9

Settings, sliders are all the way to the right for the Wi-Fi and mobile data connections?


#10

Yep


#11

Can you uncheck “Apply rules” for F-Droid in NetGuard, close F-Droid, clean CACHE, and retry?


#12

Actually it worked this morning with WiFi. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.


#13

I have the same issue, cannot see thumbnails! I turned off Blokada, cleaned cache and data, still nothing! Also I updated F-Droid.
Any advices?

#15

OMG! When I turn in data it’s working! But why it doesn’t work only with WiFi?


#16

I have a similar error but only over cellphone network, on WIFI works fine

It’s a known issue, the problem is the code is shared, you “risk” downloading updates too (big files maybe), if you want icons.
