When I get an automatic Fdroid update notification, I always get “there was a problem parsing the installer” or something like that. Are you sending me an installer for a different OS version? I have Android 11.
And why do these topics autoclose after 2 months? What if someone comes up with an answer after googling an old question?
It’s 1.16.3 at the moment, but I’ve had the problem for many months. But occasionally it works, so it must have had the problem over several versions. Just tried it within the app and successfully updated to 1.16.4. It doesn’t offer me 1.17.0.
An admin might be able to reopen, but I can’t. If I come across a topic I want to answer or have input to, I can’t.
Having to PM a mod to reply to a 2 and a bit month old post is silly.
How do I expand versions? I’m opening F-Droid app, then clicking the updates bell icon at the bottom, and I get a blank screen only containing “Congratulations! Your apps are up to date.” I see nothing else to click.
This is weird, I got an email from “YouTube ReVanced APK via F-Droid Forum email@example.com” stating the below, but it’s not showing in this conversation.
I was unable to find the cache, and my battery optimization settings crash the settings app, so I tried manually updating Fdroid fomr the website, and it downloaded then said “not installed”. Not very helpful.
Not sure I really need Fdroid since APKPure is giving me loads of updates anyway. A lot more than Fdroid ever does. I’ll put this down to a badly designed piece of rubbish. I’m off to APKPure, they seem to know what they’re doing.
Check Auto-Update Settings: Ensure that the auto-update feature is enabled in the F-Droid app. To do this, open the F-Droid app and go to Settings > Auto-update. Make sure the auto-update option is turned on.
Check Network Connectivity: Auto-updates require an internet connection. Ensure that your device is connected to the internet, either through Wi-Fi or mobile data.
Check Battery Optimization Settings: Some devices have battery optimization settings that may interfere with auto-updates. To check this, go to your device’s settings, find the battery or power management section, and make sure F-Droid is not being optimized or restricted.
Check F-Droid Version: Make sure you are using the latest version of F-Droid. Outdated versions may have bugs that affect auto-updates. Go to the F-Droid website or Google Play Store to check for updates.
Clear F-Droid Cache: Cached data can sometimes cause issues with the app. In F-Droid, go to Settings > Clear Cache, and then try running the auto-update again.
Restart F-Droid: Close the F-Droid app completely and then reopen it. Sometimes, this simple step can resolve minor glitches.
Check for Server Issues: At times, F-Droid’s update servers might be experiencing problems. Check F-Droid’s website or social media channels to see if there are any known issues with their update servers.
Reinstall F-Droid: If none of the above steps work, you can try uninstalling F-Droid and then reinstalling it from the official website or Google Play Store.
Check Background Restrictions: Ensure that F-Droid is not restricted from running in the background on your device. This can prevent auto-updates from occurring.
Consider Third-party Apps: If the issue persists, you can try using third-party apps designed to automate the update process for apps installed on your device. However, be cautious when using such apps, as they may not be as secure as F-Droid.
All you wanted me to do was install another version of Fdroid. I have to go through several unintuitive options to find it, I have no idea how you managed.
As I said, it is not spam because it does not advertise anything. He helped me out, yet it was deleted. This place is a fucking shithole, goodbye. As I said, I’m using APKPure, which works. Fdroid is now being uninstalled permanently.
