I constantly check for updates and I have found mysterious app request update. I tried many times to know to what is it by long press on it to get some information about this app. All I can do about it either cancel, or postpone the update process. FYI I'm very picky about the apps I install on my phone. I suspect it is a malicious app but I retracted later and told myself maybe it is a system app and don't stop it.

Has anyone of you encountered a similar issue like this?

  • Windows 10 Mobile
  • Lumia 640 XL

Unknown app request update

  • these are just small bugs , it would be fixed when store is restarted or when rechecked for updates – Ram Raj Jun 24 '16 at 21:23

It's just a normal app updating. It is the store which has failed to load details.
