Apps app completely resets updated apps (that originated from a different source?)
- /e/ version: 0.15-q-20210316105636-dev-FP3
- Device model(s): FP3
Steps to reproduce
Install an app from a third-party source like F-Droid, Aurora Store, the browser etc. Go to the Apps app and install an update. (AFAIK the issue is limited to these third-party cases but I'm not entirely sure.)
What is the current behavior?
The Apps app completely replaces the updated app and deletes all user data. Specifically, I installed the 2FA app andOTP through F-Droid and the update via Apps which is why I would've lost all my important 2FA stuff if I hadn't done a backup. I noticed similar behaviour with Signal and Reddit, both from Aurora.
What is the expected correct behavior?
The user data should be kept and the app itself should not be reset. This actually worked well on Pie but does not on Q.
Don't use the Apps app lol.
