Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. After the upgrade to the latest Sailfish OS version, some users that have installed a lot of third party apps from OpenRepos.net, got an error saying “you do not have any installed apps”, which forbids them to install/remove any apps via the Jolla Store.
The Jolla developers have posted a solution to this fix, on Jolla Together.
Instead of performing a factory reset to your Jolla phone, open a terminal and do:
$ rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
$ rpm --rebuilddb
Note: the second command has two underscore (_) characters, while the third one has to dash characters (-). (via)
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
