Getting the “No connection” error in Aptoide? Here’s a quick fix.
If you are an adept Android user who download apps regularly, you must have come across “Aptoide”, at one point or another. The app serves as an “app downloading platform” (like Play Store), from where Android apps can easily be downloaded. However, users often complain about a number of errors associated with this app, one of which is the “No connection” error.
To fix this error, follow through this guide with undivided attention.
How to Fix the “No Connection” Error in Aptoide
Method 1: Troubleshoot Network Connection
Typically, the “No connection” error-message indicates that “there is no internet connection” (Wi-Fi or mobile internet). Hence, as a first line of defence, you should check your mobile internet or Wi-Fi connection, and troubleshoot as appropriate.
To troublehoot internet connection, simply disconnect and reconnect to your device’s network connection (Wi-Fi or Mobile). You can also try the following:
- Disable internet.
- Set your phone to “Flight” mode.
- Disable “Flight” mode.
- Reconnect to the internet.
- Check if the error is fixed.
If it persists, the problem’s probably not from your device’s internet.
Method 2: Force Close App
If you’ve ascertained the stability of your internet connection, it’s possible that the problem is from the app itself, in which case, you can try and “Force Stop” it. This will refresh the app and fix minor glitches.
To “Force Close” Aptoide:
- Go to Settings > Application Manager
- Locate and tap on “Aptoide”
- Click on Force Close.
You can also clear the app’s data, by following the steps above, but this time select “Clear data”: Settings > Application Manager > Aptoide > Storage > Clear data.
If the issue persists, you can try the next solution.
Method 3: Restart Device
Like every tech gadget, device reboot is one of the basic solutions to fix various forms of errors on Android OS. This is because restarting a device wipes off all temporary files and bugs, and this could be the trick to fix the “No connection” error in Aptoide.
Method 4: Uninstall & Reinstall Program
As a last resort, you can uninstall the app from your device and reinstall (upgrade) to the latest version.
To reinstall Aptoide, simply uninstall it: Settings > Application Manager (Apps) > Aptoide > Uninstall. You would have to confirm uninstallation in the prompt window.
After successful uninstallation, go to Maladiva and install (upgrade to) the latest version of the app. This would require you to download the app’s APK, before installing it on your smartphone or tablet.
This should fix the “No connection” error, and you should now be able to connect and download/install apps with ease.
