I have been hearing people around with somehow the weirdest problems and not the weirdest of them all is their problem with Jolla store when they trid to fiddle about too much with the openrepos and warehouse etc.
The problem continues and nothing works! No restart or anything. You can’t remove or install any application and the Jolla store will say “you do not have any installed apps”
Anyway I’m not quite sure what exactly causes the issue but apparently the rpm database gets corrupted and it vanishes everything from sight.
Thanks to Saqib Iqbal whom decided to email Jolla Care instead of doing a factory reset (Nowadays they respond super fast. I recommend that instead of resetting the phone when problems like this accrues) has got a solution from them which we will share with you below.
Type these codes (Note: Make sure to check out for spaces, double dash and caps lock)
devel-su cd /var/lib/rpm rm -f __db.00* rpm --rebuilddb reboot
- NB1: The 3rd command has 2 underscore characters
- NB2: The 4th command has 2 dash characters. This command may last for a few minutes so please wait patiently
Hope it helped you all and was useful enough to share with a friend!
Thanks to Saqib Iqbal once again for providing the information and images!
