After checking for an update, we would recommend powercycling your device through:
Settings > System > Power > System Restart

The above menu path is for Roku TVs. For separate Roku devices the menu path is Settings > System > System Restart

@RokuDanny-R  My issue is still not resolved, I am providing you with the following information as requested:

Software Version 10.5.0 build 4174-17
Device ID: 4U759F932200
MicroSD Card: 6% used (2.0/31.4 GB)


-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)

So far only occurs on YouTube channel
Ver 2.2 Build 93005146

also found YouTubeTV to be affected (we don't subscribe but have the channel loaded). 

Ver 2.20 build 93005574

Couple of weeks ago. But we got it to work for a while (don't remember how) but it has returned today (10-10-2021).  Last accessed YouTube without issue was yesterday (10-09-2021).

-steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing

Select YouTube channel from Home screen. It indicates that it is loading. It counts down to about 54-55% then when it suddenly jumps to 100%, the error appears in a white box. "Can't run channel. YouTube could not be run because it could not be reinstalled from the network. Please check your network connection and try again."

-screenshot of any error messages of what you are experiencing.

Channel launch issues still not resolved . Recent update caused Roku 3 to malfunction.

Recent auto update ( 10/6/21) caused my Roku 3 to experience channel launch issues on all channels starting the next day. Have restarted unit and manually updated several times. Reset network and Roku 3 confirms settings are correct . This appears to be a previous problem from 9/15/21

Youtube, Prime, won't run due to being unable to reinstall from network

I see that this was an issue several weeks ago but was fixed. However, it just started today for me. Youtube and Prime (and possibly others I haven't checked) give me an error message when I try to run them that says "X can't run due to being unable to reinstall from network" or words to that effect.

I am on a TLC Roku TV, I am not sure what settings and info you need to know about. I have done a system update, no change. I have also reset the whole device, again no change.

Thanks in advance!
