Can't install channels and some not opening

I can't install any new apps and some apps aren't loading/working on my Roku express doesn't give me a reason why they just don't open and when I try to install channels like Disney plus it just says failed to Install no idea why not had any issues in the past.

Re: Can't install channels and some not opening

Roku is currently rolling out a new version of its operating system, going from version 10.0 to 10.5.    Roku menu path Settings > System > System update will show your currently installed version number and when it was installed.   Does the date correspond to the beginning of this problem?

While there, you can press Check now to see if there is an available further update and install it.  This should also update any channel apps that have pending updates.
