OS 10.5 My Roku device won’t install any apps

The following is a case with Roku Express 3930X.
This is the screen after the device reset. The device was initially running Roku OS 10.0.0, after update I see it is updated to 10.5.0.  photo_2021-10-08_07-53-34.jpg When I try to install it.  photo_2021-10-08_07-53-57.jpg On Roku Ultra 4800x (Roku OS 10.0.0), I have not reset it yet. It does not display any error message. When I remove a channel, it displays the progress dialog that says 'removing channel name', but nothing happens.

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

Did you find out the solution? 
I am facing the same issue on two of my Roku Devices.

On Roku Express: I have tried Router restart, Roku Restart, Roku Factory Reset. 

On Roku Ultra: I have tried Router restart and Roku restart. None of it solved the issue. 
I am not even able to uninstall any apps.

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

I confirmed my internet is working correctly. The connection check is showing 22Mbps. I am able to use the already installed channels on the Roku Ultra. Connection is good on Roku Express too.

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

@opnchaudhary 

Thanks for the post.

We would recommend trying to perform a factory reset on your Roku devices and setting up the devices up again to see if you are still experiencing an issue.

When trying to perform a factory reset, please make sure to press and hold down the reset button on the device for at least 30 seconds regardless of what is happening on screen.

For more information about how to perform a factory reset, visit our Support page here: Factory reset your Roku

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

I tried a factory reset with the 'reset button' on the Roku.
Everything is the same as in my first post on the Roku Express in this thread. It did not work.

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

@opnchaudhary 

Thanks for the follow up.

Your first post shows an image that looks like you need to activate your device. After performing a factory reset, did you already activate your device before trying to add channels?

Can you please provide the serial number/device ID on your Roku device? I'll be able pass the information along to our Support team to assist you further.

 

Thanks,
Danny

Re: My Roku tv won’t install any apps

I entered my email in roku. Roku sent me an email. I clicked the link and followed the steps. After the final step the roku displayed a dialog with some text 'updating' or adding channel not sure. Then the error popped.

I can see my email in System Info (Settings -> System -> About)

Serial Number: X00400E3C676
Device ID: S0092013C676
