It’s been just reported that Google Play Store error was preventing some users from checking particular apps for updates.
This is a limited bug, as 9to5Google reports. Other features such as searching for Android apps and downloading were still operational.
The online publication notes that tapping the refresh button on the “My apps & games” page returned an “Error checking for updates” warning after a loading attempt that lasted for a few seconds.
Uses didn’t know when the updates for Android would be available again, and the recent upgrades list was appearing blank.
The issue has since been fixed
It seems that Google acted quickly because the issue described above has been fixed. The online publication writes that the past app update reappeared.
“Additionally, swiping over to the Installed tab will not surface any of the apps you have installed on your device. The “Free up space” tool accessed by tapping storage at the top continues loading and fails to bring up your list of unused apps,” they write.
The Library and Beta sections are loading apps normally from the library. It’s also important to note that the rest of the Google Play has not been impacted by the Play Store updates error.
