    Default "Duplicate provider authority" error with WeatherBug

    I have a Droid X running Android 2.3.4. I have had WeatherBug (free version) installed for a long time now. Yesterday, there was an update in Google Play. I attempted to upgrade and got a "Duplicate provider authority." error. I decided to completely uninstall WB and start from scratch, but I am still getting the same error, and can't install it at all now. Help! What am I missing here? Thanks for any pointers.

    Just got a response from WB tech support:

    Thank you for your email. We have created Case #: 00196738 for your reference.

    We are aware of this issue and our engineers are currently working on the problem. We do not have a completion date yet for when it will be fixed, but we will get this resolved as soon as possible.

    (This was after I submitted this problem to them a few days ago, and then sent me an email asking for the exact info which I had sent them in the first place! Yeesh...)

    WeatherBug updated the app today - I was able to install it and all is working again for me. Hope it does the same for others here.
