Greetings,

Has anyone seen some apps getting greyed out and when you try to open it, you get a:

App isn't available. App isn;'t available at the moment.
This is managed by root.

Tried to search for this everywhere but wasn't able to find anything.
 
It's random, it's happening to a few at the moment: Wifi Analyzer, WireGuard, Wirex, Wise, etc.
As it happened to WhatsApp, I uninstalled, reinstalled and it worked but it's very odd.
Maybe custom kernel issue, is it only on boot before everything initializes? Should have to wait 2 to 4 min after boot

I don't have a custom kernel, it's straight on latest Oxygen and it stays indefinitely, funny enough. Was also happening with the XDA app, removing and reinstalling did the tri

Try turning off modules one by one till you find the culprit. No issues here

This is crazy. It just happened again, I disabled every module and rebooted but it is still there, same error message and the app is greyed out. Both on nova and oneplus launcher . Have no idea what's causing that here .
Attached is the error on the screen.
Just ran a logcat and this message is what I get when I click one of the greyed out apps:

I found the answer! The apps are being suspended by alpha backup for backup. The bugger ended up suspending itself while backing itself up. Guess what happens when you suspend your own self?....:)

A simple :

Code:
pm unsuspend com.ruet_cse_1503050.ragib.appbackup.pro
from adb shell with root did the magic

Oh wow,that's cool, @devsk, thanks for coming back for an update!
My apologies @matze19999 , I haven't seen your update on the thread (didn't get a notification!)
It just happened with me again, though, and alpha backup blocked the settings and UI wizard apps ,bizarre to say the least. Just thinking how I will get out of this situation as ADB shell doesn't work , magisk (which I renamed and is called settings) is also locked and if I boot via bootloader with a magisk_rooted boot image, I can't install magisk as well. Looks like it's start from scratch for me.
