Bug in app update distribution

Hi, there seems to be a bug in the Amazon update distribution. When I update the app early after it has gone live (in the app store via the update button), the previous version is downloaded and installed. What makes this even worse is, that this version is stored in the Amazon user library under the (wrong) new version-number. This means it will never update to the new version. The only chance is to remove the app from device and download again. If this is done early after release, the download will still be the old version but tagged with the new version-number. If done later, the download is correct. I could verify this bug twice, yesterday and today, with two different submissions. It is an Amazon Underground app. Gereon

Hi, Just to double check, is this the version number in the AndroidManifest.xml file that's being changed, or some other version number? Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick, yes, the version number of the manifest, which is also shown in the Amazon library. In case of this bug, Amazon shows the new version number, but it is the previous version. Gereon
