Store "Check for updates" displays "No Data"

Holger Teutsch shared this problem 6 years ago
Solved

I noticed this error with the Pro version 3.14.x.

As I do not use this function too often I cannot tell exactly which was the last version where it worked. I suspect it worked with 3.13.x

Good day Holger,


quite simple question - do you have a download item from Locus Store that has currently available update? Also downloaded item had to be downloaded with Locus, not manually added.


Locus use quite sensitive system for checking for updates. So If you did some modifications, copy & paste operations etc. with downloaded data, updates may not be automatically recognized and it's then need to check for updates manually.

Hi Menion,

I downloaded only through the store, no sideload, cut&paste etc..


And yes, there is at least one candidate where an update is available.

Good day Holger,


I'm worried this will be quite a problem. Let me explain it little bit - Locus keep information about downloaded items in small database in Locus/data/config/config.db . When there is request on "Check for updates", Locus test which already purchased items are also correctly downloaded (same place, same size) and if there are valid items, it's checked for available updates.


But in case, something happen with item, like change of size of file, temporarily unavailable etc. it may be removed from list of downloaded items so it's then not anymore checked for updates. Little bit complicated, agree.


Anyway as I see in your account in Locus Store, you should see update for example for map of "Italy". When you open Locus Store, then in side menu, do you see your email h.....@gmail.com? If so, then "Check for updates" should at least display available update of "Italy (LoMaps)" map even if you do not have it downloaded. Check it please once more, maybe it was also some temporary issue in Locus Store. Thank you!

Hi Menion,

yes, I see my e-mail address and my available LoCoins.

Unfortunately when I select "Check for Updates" I still get "No Data".


BTW this is not a big deal for me. I just thought that it is a simple regression in the new version and therefore I reported it.

If it's not a general problem I can live with it and it's not worth that you invest much time in it.


Thanx

Holger

Thank you Holger,


I'll look at it at start of next week with my colleague Petr, who take care about system behind our Store. As you wrote, it is not a big problem, but because it should not happen, I would like to solve it.

I have this "problem" too since 3.14

I have bought my vector maps from the store with my correct account and the Italy map is outdated too.

Maybe only internal note for developers... :) It worked but not correctly. In the update list were shown only items that user purchased in last year. Older items / purchases were not shown in update list.
