My apps updates are not downloading, why?

by DarthSwarovski / June 27, 2012 5:09 AM PDT

Hello, newbie here, with a puzzling question. Since last week I'm unable to download my apps updates from Google Play.

I'm using a Motorola Milestone 2 (I think in some places it's called Droid X, but I'm not sure) version A953. Running on Android 2.2, no updates on this one available to me. I live in Brazil, things take some time to get here...

The problem: when I click to update it shows a message that the first app update is queued, and it will never actually download, and neither will the other 9 (as of today they are already 10).

I cleaned Google Play data and cache on Settings>Applications>manage your apps. Still no luck.

Does anyone know why it is happening, and what the solution might be?

Thanks in advance.

My buddy said it so well. Ready?

"Android is the new Windows."

So true. Things don't update and more. But rather than worry about those updates why not use and enjoy this thing?

First of all, thanks for your reply, Bob.

Now, if this is the way I have to deal with my Android, well, I'm doomed, cause I'm already knee-high in a Windows 7 conspiracy. Next thing I know the black helicopters will be after me. Shocked

It's compatible!

At least it seems to be compatible with Android...

If you hear about Google addressing this issue I would appreciate the info. I won't hold my breath though, cause I have lots of things to do and cannot afford the consequences. Silly

Eye candy vs. functionality.

Frankly the companies are not focused on functionality. The basic apps for contacts is only that. Basic.

It feels like Windows 3.0 all over again to me where basic apps are nothing more than demos and you find apps to replace the ones that don't work for you.

Bob, while I appreciate immensely your help, I believe that keeping this thread is pointless. Feel free to lock it, and I'll try to get myself some cozy corner in the other discussions. If you hear some news on my issue, let me know, please.

This just in... A buddy tells me to try the Google DNS on their WiFi link the next time when doing updates.

Might help?

Bob, have mercy. I'm in the middle of what is my side rant du jour, fighting for 2 days Windows 7 registry logs. One would think that when you inform Windows that the current user has its name changed it would alter all the subroutines to avoid generating conflict. But we all know that Windows is the greatest joke inflicted on humanity, cause unless you still remember your good ol' DOS you're d00med. Cry

I'm also doing my best refraining from not cursing the previous owner straight to the ninth circle of hell for leaving me to argue with the stupidest OS ever. Or I'll akcnowledge that resistance is futile and have an expert formatting this computer, cause I'm starting to believe it has a personal grudge against me.

/side rant

Please, would you mind explaining me what you've said above, using very small words, and pitying the poor old crazy cat lady?

I didn't do it!

It was a possible fix . Google this -> Google DNS.

I can't possibly guess what WiFi router you use and tell you how to change this as no router was shared above or I missed it.
