YouTube won’t run

Anyone else having a problem with YouTube not working? I go to it and it say YouTube could not be run because it could not be reinstalled from network. Check networks connection. Network connection is fine. I’ve deleted the app restarted my Roku and reinstalled and getting the same message

Re: YouTube won’t run

I was watching YouTube just now. Whatever is going on may just be a temporary glitch. You've already restarted your Roku, and your network seems to be working. 

Along that line, are all other apps, or at least, 2-3 other apps, working okay? If so, I'd just assume it's a temporary glitch that will resolve shortly.

Try changing your screensaver to a basic Roku one (such as one of the Roku clocks), and/or changing your theme to the Default theme, and then try loading the YT app.

ok, got e mail from youtube tv suggesting to pull device and replug in.  I pulled the power from my Roku stick and let it set for a minute, then replugged and Youtube tv now loads.

Nope didn’t work. It worked today before I went to work so it was off while I was at work, but wouldn’t work after turning it on

I can’t open YouTube or prime. Something needs to get fixed!
