Fix 'InvalidApplication For Update' error on Nokia Symbian phones.

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 3:35 PM

You try to download a newer version of an app on a Nokia mobile phone, it downloads but says Invalid Application For Update when you try to install it. I have found some fixes for it. There are three fixes I know for the error. Start from the first one. If a particular fix solved the error, don't move on to the next fix. If a particular fix didn't solve the error, move on to the next one.

Fix #1

1) Delete all the applications on your mobile with the same name of the application which you are trying to download and getting the error.

2) Download the latest version of the app from the official website on your computer.

3) Download Nokia Suite on your computer.

4) Open up Nokia Suite on your computer.

5) Connect your Nokia to your computer via USB.

6) Install the app via the Nokia Suite.

7) Check on your Applications folder or some other folder in your Nokia, the app will be there.


Fix #2

1) Delete all the applications on your mobile with the same name of the application which you are trying to download and getting the error.

2) Open Nokia Store or Ovi Store on your Nokia.

3) Download the app from there.


Fix #3

1) Delete all the applications on your mobile with the same name of the application which you are trying to download and getting the error.

2) Download Nokia Suite on your computer.

3) Open Nokia Suite on your computer.

4) Connect your Nokia to your computer via USB.

5) Head over to Nokia Store on your computer and install the app from there.

6) Check on your Applications folder or some other folder in your Nokia, the app will be there.

These fixes works on most Nokia mobile phones.
