Software store crashes
#1
I haven’t been able to use the software store in a couple weeks now. Crashes as soon as I go to updates or try to search categories for apps. I see people talking about this megapixels app that was apparently included in the nightly build a couple nights ago but it’s not on my phone. Does updating from CLI not update the OS as well? That’s the only way I have been able to get any updates

I had to install it manually:
apt install megapixels

Thanks. That’s what I ended up doing as well. Managed to get the software store to work but I have to go to my installed apps first before selecting the updates tab. If I click straight on the updates tab as soon as I open the store it crashes. If I go the other route I’m able to update through the store

Actual good advice to keep the software store from crashing. I gave up on the software store early on because of this issue. I find it much more consistent and informative to upgrade from CLI anyway. I recommend giving it a try test your own preferences.

For Debian-based distros (e.g. Mobian, UBports, PureOS):
Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

For Arch-based distros (e.g. PMOS, Manjaro):
Code:
sudo pacman -Syyu
