Just like any other apps, you can face some specific errors like Aurora Store not working while using the app.
Don’t worry, we have all the quick fixes so that you don’t have to encounter issues while using the Aurora Store again.
- Why do I have two Aurora Store apps after installing the new builds?
If you are facing this specific problem, it might be due to the fact that you have subversions of Aurora Store (Beta & Nightly) installed instead of Aurora Store version 4 Stable, which comes with corresponding package names. You can uninstall those or keep it if you want.
- Why Do I face a Bad Request Issue?
If you are facing the bad request issue, you may have a device running Android that was originally shipped without Google support.
To resolve the problem, simply spoofing to another device configuration with the same architecture (e.g. arm64-v8a, armeabi-v7a, armeabi) and better yet, same Target Android Runtime APIs (API30: Android 11, API29: Android 10, API28: Android 9, etc) will be helpful.
- Why Do I See Timeout Error?
You encounter the timeout issue when network connection is either blocked or network speed is too slow (Aurora Store waits only for 20 sec for an authentication request). If there is no response from Google’s servers, then there will be multiple timeouts.
- Installation Problems
Keep in mind that bundled apps (split apks) can’t be installed on OEM ROMs, i.e. MIUI, Oppo, due to shameless mods like (VirusCheck, Tracker Stats, etc.).
To help resolve the installation problems, choose one of the solutions below :
- Use the Aurora Services installation method.
- Install the original Android Package installer and try.
- Turn off vendor optimizations (like MIUI Optimizations, not battery optimizations).
- Use the root installation method.
For the second point, you may need to install it as a system app for it to be able to use a session installer. Additionally, removing MIUI’s package installer might help further. For further information, the actual problem with MIUI is that it only allows installations through Google Play Store and Xioami GetApps.
- Why do I keep Getting Metadata – Downloads failed, could not fetch files?
If you are facing this problem, try out the fixes listed below:
- Clear the cache & data of the Aurora Store

Step 2. Click on Apps and Notifications and then tap on All Apps.
Step 3. Find the Aurora Store from the list of apps and click on it.
Step 4. Then click on Storage.
Step 5. Tap on Clear Cache.
Step 6. After that, tap on Clear Data.
Step 7. Re-open the Aurora Store & try your download again.
- Check that you have a strong Wi-Fi or mobile data connection
To ensure all your apps’ ultimate performance, you must make sure to have a strong internet connection. It’s best if you can connect to a Wi-Fi network. However, if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, ensure that you have a strong mobile data connection. Then try your download the Aurora Store or any other apps from it again.
- Restart your device
If you still can’t use the Aurora Store or can’t download apps after you clear the cache & data of Aurora Store and checked your network connection, you must go for restarting your device. To do that correctly, follow these steps below:
Step 1. Press and hold the Power button until the menu pops up.
Step 2. Click on Power off or Restart if that is an option.

- Why Do I See download Failed – Session expired?
If you are encountering this specific error, it means that the session has expired and you need to relogin again. It would help if you wait a few minutes before signing in so that the session gets refreshed.
- Installation failed
If your installation method is set to Root and your Android version 11 (R), then you may experience problems with installing apps. Such as Installation Failed. For a quick fix, that works every now and then, is to force clear all downloads in the downloads page within Aurora Store and try installing it again.
- INSTALL_FAILED_NO_MATCHING_ABIS: Failed to extract native libraries, res=-113
It happens because you might chose a device configuration that is unsuited for your device cpu architecture (e.g. arm64-v8a, armeabi-v7a, armeabi). The device configuration needs to contain the same arch as the one your device arch has, otherwise you will face this type of error upon installation process. To fix this, simply spoof your device to the correct device configuration, logout & login, restart Aurora Store and try installing the app again.
- Why I Can’t find apps?
Sometimes there can be such scenarios where you might not find the app you want in Aurora Store. These might include being invited to a beta app through an app developer, an app being geographically restricted or an app being device or OS-specific.
- Invited to the beta app
Some beta apps can be accessed through the beta login button in apps with beta programs. Of course, a beta app specially invited by a developer should have its own account with the email address the developer invited you to.
This may not happen because of the Geo-locked app function. The app you are trying to find is most likely geo-blocked. This means that either it is not accessible in your country or the locale of the anonymous account you are using is set to a different potential country than yours. setting.
Another reason could be that the app you are looking for is a device-specific app. The app you’re looking for could be hardware or operating-system-specific. For example, Google Camera can only run on Pixel devices, and the OnePlus Launcher can only run on OnePlus devices with native libraries or flags. Forget using the Aurora store as you can’t even install these on other devices using the Google Play store.
- Aurora Store is not working whatsoever
Check if you are using the latest stable or nightly build. For some reason, some people have reported issues with installing older versions of the Aurora Store from third-party he providers such as Softonic and Uptodown.
