Samsung Galaxy S8 - Galaxy Apps - Installation Failed (SIG_FAILED)

Hi, 

 

Since the latest major update (Oreo) I've been unable to update any of the Galaxy Apps, when ANY app is attempted to be updated it will prepare, download and then fail with the attached error.

 

I've tried:

 

  • Clearing the cache
  • Restarting the phone
  • Checking permission settings
  • Updating to the latest minor OS update
  • Tried to update apps on their own or via the update all
  • enabled / disable auto update

Only the Galaxy store is failing, Google Play store apps continue to update without any issues.

 

I've read some other posts with similar error messages and tried a number of steps but none seem to have fixed the issue.

 

Are there any logs I can check to find out what SIG_FAILED really means?

 

Any help appreciated

 

Thanks

Update:

 

Tried a few more things last night, finally got it working.

 

It appears the latest Galaxy Apps update does not work on my phone.

 

I uninstalled updates from Galaxy Apps, loaded the restored version, cancelled the update prompt and then went into the available apps update area, I then clicked update all and now all the apps have updated.

 

Thanks

Try uninstalling updates on the Galaxy Store (or disable the app itself and then re enable it) it seems to have an internal error - and then reopen Galaxy Apps and hopefully the Store itself will update properly, then allowing you to update apps.

Thanks for your reply, I tried what you suggested and whilst the Galaxy Apps did update itself, the problem updating other apps still remains :(

 

Anything else suggested?

 

Thanks!

Hey! Glad it worked out for you... It would have been the next thing to recommend - an older/original version of Galaxy Apps.
Seen similar posts dotted about. Hopefully it'll help a lot of people out.
