    It suddenly disappeared and when I try to reinstall it gives error -501. I'm trying to avoid a factory reset. I do not have root access right now...

    Details:

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? When you say Google Keyboard disappeared, do you mean it was no longer in Settings>Apps>All? Which keyboard are you using now?

    Are those messages from some system log?
