Microsoft suspends new app publishing on Windows Phone Marketplace due to bug
August 15, 2012 at 10:52 GMT | By Darlington Moyo
You may have experienced issues with updating or downloading applications from Marketplace. This is because the Windows Phone team has been upgrading the App Hub and Marketplace, which in turn has created other issues.
The Windows Phone team - via the Windows Phone developer blog - has announces that they discovered an issue with their new digital certificates that has caused them to temporarily stop publishing new apps. The issue only impacts phones that upgraded to Windows Phone 7.5 from Windows Phone 7 and only apps published in the last couple of days.
Because of this, when trying to download a new app you may see an error message and when attempting to update an existing app, you might repeatedly be prompted to retry the update. The Windows Phone dev team don't recommend that people uninstall these apps because they might not be able to download and use them again until they deploy a fix.
This may explain why our readers have been complaining of not being able to download the revised WhatsApp application. So the message is clear guys - if you get an update prompt and the app fails to update, ignore it until you hear that Marketplace has been fixed.
