Default Can't Update Apps

Hey, everyone. I've recently come across an issue with Google Play. I'm running CyanFox 2.0.1 which is Android 4.4.2. I don't believe this is a ROM issue. I haven't bothered to wipe and reflash yet. I came across this issue about a week of running CyanFox 2.0.1, so it didn't pop up right away. Anyways, the issue is that I can not update any apps. When I open the Play Store and go to my apps, it tells me there aren't any updates. I know this is wrong because if I open up Aptoide, it tells me there are updates for my apps. However, if I try to update via Aptoide, I get an error that says the App Package name already exists and it can't install. Not sure what is going on, but I'm hoping there is an easy fix without having to wipe and reflash everything.

Thanks

You could try to remove your google account and then re-add it. I've been running this rom w/o issue for almost 3 weeks (unofficial and now official) of course I started by using the wipe for new rom option in Philz recovery (under factory reset)


As always, a clean flash is always recommended (the XDA mantra)

You could also try clearing Party Store data and cache in the app manager first.

Thanks for the suggestion! I did clean flash when I originally flashed the ROM, I just didn't want to wipe everything and reflash just to get the apps to update. I tried removing and re-adding the account without any luck. I think I'll just wait for the next CyanFox build before I wipe anything. Thanks for the suggestion, though

I did wipe the Play Store data without any luck. It's not too big a deal, I can just wait for the next CyanFox build. Thanks!

Yeah, I've read their site and I don't know what their ROM cycle is. Not weekly as the Official came out the 18th.

I was looking around their Google + page and found a post that said they're trying to get builds out at least once a month. I know they just upgraded their servers, so build times are much shorter now. But yeah, I don't think they really have a release schedule. They're doing a good job, though. Looks like their user base is growing quite rapidly
