PreCentral: Retry after a failed App Catalog download


Recommended Posts

Download Failed ErrorHave you ever tried to either purchase or update an app from the App Catalog and you get a "Download failed" error? First, don't panic! Second, don't immediately give the app a 1 star review since it would not download. While these types of errors occasionally occur when downloading apps, especially when updating multiple apps at once, it's usually easy to fix and just requires a little manual intervention. There are actually a few places to perform this fix, either from the Software Manager, on the App description page, or from the error dashboard notification.

  • If you load up the actual App Description page from the App Catalog, you will see "Download failed" where you would normally tap to buy the app along with a yellow error triangle. Tapping on that error will give you the option to try to download the app again or to cancel the download.
  • From the Software Manager app, you can find the failed app with that same yellow error triangle replaced over the version number of the app. Tapping on that error triangle will give you the same options as above to try the download again or to cancel the download
  • Finally, depending on your webOS device and version, tapping on the Download Failed notification will either take you to you to the App Description page or the Software Manager. The just follow the directions above

You should first simply "try again" to reinitiate the download. If you still get an error, then select the option to cancel the download and open up the app directly in the App Catalog and try to manually download the app again. If the app still does not download, wait a little while to see if it's simply a glitch on the app catalog server. Finally, if you can not get the app to update regardless of what you do, contact HP/Palm support. Do not contact the developer because they will not be able to support your download

Please note that if you had previously installed a paid app from outside of the App Catalog but the developer updates the app in the catalog, you will still

. However, the app will always fail to download no matter what you do since the app is not listed in your profile as a paid app. If you want the updated version, first from your device and then purchase it directly in the app catalog.

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hi there, I have the following tvs:
      OLED55C26LD
      OLED42C24LA
      And I'm trying to change the area code using the service remote, so I can download apps from USA (I'm currently in the UK), such as Max, HULU etc.  I'm trying the codes which are bandied around the internet, but the area just stays as EU.  I've noticed on youtube videos etc that the older models with the older OS have no issued with this, but mine seems unable to change.
      Does anyone know if perhaps the newer models have newer codes?  I've used 1793, 1843 and 22287 (as found in this very forum).  But nothing happens.  Any help from users who may have got this working would be appreciated, thank you.

      After viewing photos/videos on a flashdrive plugged into the USB of an LG TV and using SmartShare to view... and then removing the USB and then no longer having access to the TV... I noticed on the flashdrive a new folder called "LG TV" and within what appears to be files that may have been the thumbnails displayed on the TV. My question is... do those thumbnails also remain on the TV as recent history even without the USB plugged in? The LG Smart TV online user guide refers to "Recent" ("To view a list of recently viewed or added content, select Recent). Would thumbnails be there without the source flashdrive?

      We have two LG TV's that stopped connecting to our PLEX media server after the last update. TImes out saying "Checking connection speed to Raspberrypi" which the PLEX is on
      Upgraded the Mesh Routers before trying anything, still only the PLEX app doesn't work
      Our other TCL TV and Roku and TIVO still work with Plex, so this is only the LG TV's that can't connect anymore.
      Another annoying error after the last update is that any Streaming app (Amazon, Netflix, and DIsney) now fall out of the app and go back to HDMI port 1 if we pause for 30 seconds.  Which we have always done for a Bathroom break or getting drinks.
