    I have an application stuck in "Installing" mode. When I go to application downloads it shows up as installing. There is no way to cancel it and it appears to be affecting other programs from being uninstalled. Trying to uninstall Wave Secure and it won't uninstall. I have removed the battery, even tried a task killer (didn't see anything) but nothing will remove it.

    Any suggestions?

    Help, I'm new here.....I have the Samsung Fascinate and I had an app installed that was working fine. All of a sudden it just says installing and I can't do anything with it. I even uninstalled the offending app and it is still hung up on "installing" in the market...won't let me stop...won't let me cancel.....

    ...I cleared the cache of the market in the manage apps section and that did nothing.


    Can someone help me PLEASE!

    Thanks

    Same issue. Unfortunately I tried uninstalling apps. Now they don't show anywhere but they still show as installing so I can't clear cache or anything because it looks like they don't exist.

    OK, here is my last ditch effort that worked.

    I used AppMonster and backed up my apps. I would guess you can do this with any uninstaller.

    Then went and uninstalled the market via AppMonster. It didn't really seem to uninstall the market because the app was still on my phone. However, when I clicked on the app I had to agree to terms of service like it was the first time I was using it. When I went into market to look at downloaded apps. The two apps that were stuck in install mode are no longer stuck like that and show but show as "free" as they are not installed.

    Such a simple fix to just uninstall then reinstall the market app. Can't believe I didn't think of it first.

    It's not even as in depth as all that.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Manage Applications.
    3. Select All tab.
    4. Select Market.
    5. Force stop.
    6. Clear cache.
    7. Clear data.
    8. Open Market and accept Terms.

    Problem solved without losing data or apps.

    Thanx ... this cleared up the download being stuck issue. I now have downloads failing but that may be just a network or phone issue and will try them later.

    Yeah, I've got downloads failing as well. Must be a market issue. Will try later tonight.

    Got to step 7. Didn't see a "clear data" option. So SwiftKey is still "installing".

    Had issue with apps installing and counld not kill the install. Found answer. Go to Manage apps, Market, uninstall updates and clear cache. That should take care of the problem.

    With the latest update for Samsung Galaxy apps, it won't let you past the splash screen without forcing you to update. Does anyone know the root cause of this issue? I have apps at total random that get stuck on "installing". Some that have worked fine in the past and some that are new to my world. I've forced stopped, unistalled/reinstalled , cleared cash, restarted phone etc and still nothing. One of the apps I'm trying to install is as simple as a watch face for gear. Others are just run of the mill galaxy utilities. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I went into Google Play Store in settings and uninstalled all updates to that app. I shut down the phone. Started up the phone and my apps started updating on WiFi. Google Play Store updated itself to the latest version. No problems.

    This is on a Moto E running Lollipop
