Galaxy S5 :: Can't Download Any Apps - Insufficient Space On Device Error Keeps Coming Up
Apr 6, 2015
So I originally tried to update one of my apps that I've been using for awhile when I got the "insufficient space on the device" error message, so then I uninstalled it and tried to download it again and still get the error message.
The app is 20.09MB in size and I currently have 445MB of available space on my Samsung Galaxy S5.
I went through and uninstalled a bunch of apps that I just don't use anymore as well as moved a bunch over to my SD card and yep still getting the message so I don't understand what's going on?
I also tried downloading other apps just to see if it was something within that app or if it's my phone but I get it.
I frequently get an error saying there is insufficient space when I try to install or update apps. I then have to go to the market and find the app to try again. (It usually works the second time. Only once have I had to do it there times.) I would estimate this happens once every 8 installs/updates. I have 5.9 GB free on the phone, and 8 GB on the SD card. This started happening a few months or weeks ago. Does anybody else have this problem?
Only recently my telco releases OS5 for BOLD 9000. Initially I downloaded it and tried to install but it says that there is insufficient space, at that point of time i still keep my fav theme ans stuff which free apps space is around 20mb, and the installation still says that I have insufficient space until I totally wipe the whole thing clean to its original factory status BUT it still says insufficient space for update. Do I have to delete the system software of 4.6 before I need to have the "space" required? (I have currently 50mb of free apps space isn't it enough?)
Please help as the previous update from earlier version to version 4.6 was just few clicks away from desktop manager and things are done and for this 4.6 to 5 update takes me 1 whole day, loosing all my setting and data (cleaned EVERYTHING that I can think of and read all the thread in CB still I can't update to OS 5) Its a Real waste of time and pain from head to toe. I have 50mb of free Application storage space and yet it still needs 7mb of space for the update. I'm thinking of sledge hammering my Bold a couple of time through the process of deleting and restarting.
Many of my apps are no longer functioning propery (even email) because the internal storage has filled up. All 8.9 gbs of it. I have an SD Card (32 gb) and it has over 29 gb of available space. I have the media set to save to the sdcard so my pics/movies are there. I have 1.9 gbs of space (out of the 2.9 gb) for apps left so I have plenty of room there. How and what do I move to the SDCARD and how do I make sure this data is saved to the sdcard from now on? When I go to manage the apps I can;t find anything. I can manually move files but what can/should I move and how do I get the apps (etc) to save to the sdcard only?
So suddenly when I was trying to download some stuff, I keep getting this reminder. At first, I just deleted some apps and files, and I still have around 15 gigs left. But this notification keeps showing up! I tried the odex and clearing dalvik cache methods, but nothing had been working for me.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 from Verizon, currently running Android v4.4.4. Due to battery life that's gone down to about 7 hours from an initial average of about 11, I decided it was time to reset my phone to see if that might work (though I've taken to the less nuclear option of allowing Google to restore my apps and app data from Google's backup).
Before the reset, I'd had almost every app that could be moved to the SD card moved to the SD card.
The reset did not affect the SD card.Now, I'd like to move all my apps that can be so moved, moved onto the SD card again. My question is, since the reset did not affect my SD card (I'd even removed it for one of the two resets that I've done since last night), is there app stuff from my previous installation on my SD card, stuff that I should be able to delete now to make space for my new set of apps that I want to move to the card?If so, how do I clear out that old app stuff?
I assume that I need to...If I had Audible installed on the card before, and I now have Audible in my phone's internal storage, if I move it to the card, is there any chance that it'll recognize the previous installation, re-associate itself with it, and thus save me the time of downloading previously downloaded audiobooks?
After getting my Wildfire S, I installed five or six apps. Then I started getting "Insufficient storage" when trying to apply updates, so I started removing them again. Eventually, the "insufficient storage" came back again, so I removed more.I'm now at the point of having to refuse updates as there's no more that I can remove - I've been looking to remove unused parts of the basic phone, for example.
I'm currently on pure nexus/ then restored stock and titanium backup is displaying an insufficient storage error when trying to back up an app. Also, I can't download anything from Firefox or chrome.I've reflashed the ROM and it didn't solve my issues. What can I do to fix this?
I have a blackberry bold 9780 Carrier vodafone and I have a v 220.127.116.116 OS but whenever I try to download an app from my blackberry app world I get a pop up that says "An error has occurred. Please try again later". Basically I can't download apps and I don't know why?
I am using an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1 (I believe), I never had any problems with app store before, but recently I cannot update or download any apps. When I put in my password, it says "Unknown error". I tried turning it off, but still didn't work.
I have recently been getting errors lately saying Application cannot be installed in the default install location when trying to update apps. I've had them before but have been able to download and update apps later but now it is not updating. I have tried downloading new apps and no luck either. I think i have an SD card installed.
And while updating Google Maps, I got another message saying "insufficient storage available" yet I have 9.92 GB of space available.
I recently purchased an S5' my 3rd "S". I had Pandora on my last phone and went to download on my new phone and got the above error message. I have downloaded several other aps successfully so I can't believe it is a setting. I received the same error on one or two other aps as well,
I'm new to smart phones and trying to find my way around them. I had an Orange San Deigo phone and purchased a few apps for it and they ran very well (It's a pity the phone didn't work properly) I was upgraded to the Galaxy S2. I have now tried to install the apps on to the Galaxy but the Galaxy is not recognized in the download screen
