After an android update, my apps disappeared. The apps cannot be seen in the apps list, and they are seen as 'com.something.something' in the settings app manager. Some of the apps are not in the SD Card and even Android System Webview disappears after every restart. Sometimes, my phone randomly restarts and all my apps come back. Please help.

  • What is your previous and current Android versions? What are all the list of apps that are disappearing? Add more information that could help answering your question. – Lucky Feb 18 '16 at 8:00

    Device brand/model might also help. Also, do all apps "disappear", or only those installed on SD card? – Izzy Feb 18 '16 at 8:02
  • You should try wiping cache in recovery mode, it helps occasionally. – Tamoghna Chowdhury Feb 18 '16 at 8:10
  • My device is SM-N9005. I updated from N9005DXUGBOF1 to N9005DXUGBOK3. Apps which disappear are Aznog, Google Street View, Android System Webview, Silly Sausage, Brain Dots, C2HAMPS, MEGA and Psych!. – Bryan Yee Feb 18 '16 at 22:26
  • I have already tried wiping cache several times but it doesn't seem to work – Bryan Yee Feb 18 '16 at 22:34

Apparently it was a problem with knox, and it fixed itself after i rooted ny phone.
