I have had an ongoing problem with my note 9 not updating apps in the google playstore. It will show updates pending with a list of apps to update that never move beyond "download pending".
Occasionally the apps will update themselves out of the blue but only very occasionally, I usually have 20-40 updates sitting trying to download.
I have tried every solution I can find:
In short, I have tried every solution I can find with no results. has anyone else ran into this problem and if so were you able to fix it?
Does anyone know of any installed apps that might affect this procedure?
Desperate for help
If none of the troubleshooting steps have helped, I would recommend having your device evaluated by a technician at a UBreakIFix location. Make sure your device is backed up prior to having a technician take a look at the device. Click on this link here to get the closet UBreakIFix location: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ubreakifix
Are you using any kind of firewall, Ad blocking or VPN apps? I had a similar issue but it was because I use a firewall app to block some ads in apps and I accidentally blocked a Google domain.
I'm not using a vpn or any adblocker (I have an adblocker on my laptop) and no firewall or VPN on my router as well. I'm quite stymied. The odd thing is I had this same problem crop up on my Samsung 7 edge although it would come and go with the edge. With my Note 9 the problem is always there.
It is indeed very frustrating, not knowing if it is hardware or software, Android or Samsung or some other glitch. Mine will go on like that for a week(s), then suddenly start updating normally again, then start the whole thing again
A few days ago it did indeed start updating apps normally, we will see how long it lasts.
Hopefully, yours will as well
I have tried with and without wifi, as well on other wifi, the problem continues. It will not update for weeks at a time, then out of the blue go back to normal. very perplexing and annoying. I wonder if this is a common problem with Samsung phones or all Android devices.
