Then, one day, I tried to update an app that I'd previously downloaded and installed from the Amazon AppStore, and it would not update, no matter what... From that point forward, all updates (of apps from the Amazon AppStore) and all new apps would not download.
The "Download in progress" bar jumps to about 5% done..."Download in progress" alternates with "Download queued" a few times...and then my Notification area shows "Downloading 0%" for each attempted download/update.
I've tried LOTS of things to fix this but NOTHING seems to work. Any addition ideas would be much appreciated.
- Verifying that "Unknown Sources" is checked (allowed) in the Applications preferences...I've even un-checked this, rebooted, and re-checked it, just for giggles.
- De-registering all devices associated with my Amazon account...and re-registering this HPTouchPad device, rebooting in between
- Un-installing and re-installing the Amazon AppStore application (and de-registering/re-registering the device again), re-booting in between. I'm currently running version 2.0.0 of the Amazon AppStore application, which I installed by copying the apk to my downloads folder via USB...and launching it manually...because if I try to download it from Amazon directly, the download fails, not surprisingly.
Thanks in advance for any new ideas.
BTW, I also tried getting help from the Amazon AppStore customer service team. They tried, but in the end, they were no help. They did mention that I could (perhaps) delete one particular file via the Android File Manager application...but that file was not present on my device...not even when viewing the folder they said it'd be in via a PC (on a USB connection).
The file they said I could delete to (maybe) fix this issue was /.android_secure/smdl2tmp1.asec
Unfortunately, on my device, the folder: /.android.secure/ was empty already....so nothing could be deleted.
