Android Developers Having Issues Updating Their Apps

We’ve been receiving a steady stream of emails these past few hours letting us know that developers are unable to access most of the Market Back End to do some of the basic things in life: upload new apps, update apps and view their comments. Whenever developers attempted to maintain their accounts, they are greeted with ominous errors such as “Failed to load application list. Try again later.”, “An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later.” and my favorite “You are not the owner of this application”. Yikes!

To top it all off, some developers are claiming that this has been going on for as long as three days with no response from Google. There is a topic started on the Google Help Forums. I’m not sure if those forums are for devs only, but if you can get in there let’s help out our developers and get Google off of the pot.

[Thanks to the Devs who sent this in!]

    Yeah, I have been getting problems updating/downloading apps on my phone since the 24th of March. This is the thread I posted on the forums, but never really got an answer for that problem. http://androidforums.com/sprint-hero-support-troubleshooting/304527-market-not-working.html I really thought I was the only one :(

    I’m sure it will work again next week. The Market team is proud of their 75%+ uptime.

      You think Android Marketplace has 75% uptime? Market failures seem to be the only thing more reliable than force closes in Doggcatcher.

      • petersinnott

        I’m sure it is well above 75% tbh. Not as far above as I would expect for the company I used to think Google were.

    I thought that’s an April Fools’ joke from Google. Still having problem to view statistics after 1st of March.

    The dreaded 404 error all weekend.

  • Comvolutionlabs

    Seems like this problem appears from today morning.

  • Aarafa53

    I have the same issue, I don’t know when google will give response, seems that they dont bother about all complains

    It’s been like this since Saturday morning for me… I wouldn’t mind so much if we got a message from Google telling us they are aware of it and fixing it but as it stands, we have no idea when it will be fixed.

  • debbie

    I’m having issues w apps not working also getting error messages! Please fix soon!

    Let’s all thank AndroidDev team for acknowledging the problem. Finally.

    And let’s also ask, ‘What kept you?’ Earth to Andy Rubin: HIRE MORE PEOPLE.

    • petersinnott

      I guess more would help, possibly better would be better. Practically some communication would go a long way.
