This is not a problem with a Fairphone! The following concerns a Samsung Galaxy device with CM11.
I would like to download Fennec from F-Droid but I can’t start the download. When I tap the button, the download bar starts to run (the continuous one, not the progress bar) but then it disappears and I get the notification ‘not installed’.
I’ve got enough storage left, internet connection is working. Apps by unknown sources are allowed. I have installed apps through F-Droid before, some downloads work, others don’t. Any ideas?
Not sure about Orbot, but can you stop AdAway for testing? I don’t know anything about ROMToolbox, but a proxy like AdAway (if implemented like that) could cause this. Just a guess, normally the software should give you a meaningful error message to begin with
Was just a hunch because normally they are implemented as proxies. The problem is that you don’t get a good error message from f-droid. So the only other thing that comes to mind is: clear the f-droid cache/reinstall f-droid and check F-droids proxy settings (in app).
I just “misconfigured” my proxy. I get a black box “Not installed” in f-droid.
Now I hope that I will get mine up & running again
Not sure what really “fixed” this in the end to be honest! But f-droid could give better error messages … maybe it was just some kind of network issue? It looks like F-droid’s “not installed” gets triggered quickly.
It took me a while to mine back running again, although I’ve “only” changed the proxy settings a bit. Looks like f-droid has some issues with refreshing/updating it’s configuration. Not 100% sure. If we would be really nice people we would have a look into the f-droid bug tracker
