Jolla Store "My apps" shows only apps installed after upgrade(s)

REGRESSION: Yes - to my memory, apps were all there in Store, after upgrade.

This post is focused on an Xperia: the issues with a Jolla phone are mentioned as reference.

I upgraded my Xperia X to Koli and now Jolla Store shows only the apps I had removed before the upgrade and reinstalled afterwards. I thought I had messed up. Yesterday I updated my two Jolla 1. Something odd happened as well that convinced me to write here.

I have three phones (two dismissed Jolla 1, and my everyday Xperia X F5122); one week after Koli was available for everybody I upgraded the Xperia, using Olf’s “sfos-upgrade” for the first time. Since I am running “just tight” with the space in root’s partition, I uninstalled some apps, then proceeded with the update. After completing the update I went to reinstall the apps I needed, and when I looked under “My apps” I realised there were only those I had just reinstalled. I am quite sure I disabled all repositories in Storeman (which I use), and I remember checking that Storeman was up to date. Nevertheless, some doubts arose. After that, I looked around here in the Forum, and I ran “version --dup”. The whole process ran smoothly, but nothing changed. At that point I suspected I might have done something (or several somethings) wrong, and I ended procastinating any further “investigation” (phone is functional, after all).

This past weekend I decided to upgrade my two older phones. One, I just updated from the state it was. The other, I decided to wipe and reset completely; from there, I updated it through the several “steps” till v3.4.0. When finished, I only checked that the phone was working, but no more. I realised later that an issue similar to the one on the Xperia had happened only when I decided to play with Jupii on it. In fact, I can see only Jupii and TOH under “My apps”; yet, I can also see Clock being installed, under “Top apps”.

I think this is similar to this, with different OS version, but different from this one insofar things relate only to “My apps” and not to the whole store.


  • Checked that apps were up to date
  • Removed some apps to make space available in root
  • Disabled all repositories from Openrepos
  • Ran sfos-upgrade following instructions
  • Upgraded phone


  1. Upgrade OS ?


“My apps” showing all the apps marked as installed under “Top apps”.


“My apps” showing only the apps installed after the upgrade.



No more additional info because first time posters can’t upload more media

Do you mean you didn’t use the normal upgrade method via Settings->Sailfish OS?

Also, am I correct to assume that the applications that you are missing are Clock, Calculator, etc.? The way you describe the bug is actually the way it should work, but I think I’m missing something. That is, “My apps” will show only the applications that you installed, nothing more than that.

I have the same situation with XA2. I also have a Jolla C which seems to be ok.

It’s possible to update apps if they aren’t up to date and this will make the app reappear im My Apps.

Edit: I upgraded the XA2 using the normal upgrade tool from settings. With Jolla C I used the sfos-upgrade script from OpenRepos.

I recall having a similar issue but restarting the phone seemed to fix it. If you haven’t restarted since the upgrade, it might be worth a try.

Perhaps you should all consider to update Sailfish OS the way it’s meant to, as opposed with third party scripts? :slight_smile:

The phone I have this problem with was upgraded in the normal way through settings.

And there are enough reports where the update was not offered through the settings menu!
My X was the same, fresh resetted to 3.3 but no signs of update to 3.4 (yes, I set up Jolla account. yes, I rebooted. yes, I waited two days). And also no update offered to 4.0…

Yes, I mean I used the sfos-upgrade script.

No, you are not. I am missing also some applications installed by user: mail, weather, media, utilities, and more…

Thank you mate. Unfortunately, I just restarted it, but to no avail…
