I uninstalled an app using a long tap shortcut that comes on One plus two mainscreen, which I guess is also the time when there is an update waiting for this app because the next time I opened the Play Store, an update shows up for the app. When trying to update and then uninstall (this time from Play Store), it still keeps showing up in Updates list and the whole things repeat.
The app is Swiftkey Keyboard, if that helps. Any recommendations on permanently removing the app would be helpful. Android v6.0.1, OS: OxygenOS v3.0.2
- I tried Settings > Apps and there is no uninstall option, instead there is a disable option next to force stop. In play store, there is update option which doesn't help as I stated earlier.
- I doubt if it is a system app, because I voluntarily installed it (from Google Play Store as I remember; I enabled installation from unknown sources only after the release of Pokemon go, I am not aware of any other possible ways of side-loading)
- The app doesn't show up in Device Administrators (there's only Android Device Manager and another paid app visible in device administrators)
- I disabled it, it stopped showing up in updates, keyboard menu and elsewhere, but it still is taking up that internal storage as shown in Settings > Apps.
