I am using FDroid on a XPeria XZ.

Today I had problem updating Street Complete. Since, I have a unnamed, blank icon showing up in my app drawer. I can't seem to remove it even via settings.

I have tried to uninstall StreetComplete to check if that would fix the problem, no dice.

Is there any way to known how it appeared, and how to remove it?

    Did you clear the launcher cache? Reboot after that may help too – beeshyams Jan 9 '18 at 16:25
  • Restarting the phone did it, should have thought of that earlier – DrakaSAN Jan 9 '18 at 20:19

Clearing the launcher cache and rebooting device was suggested and it fixed the problem

This was recommended to clear from the memory the remanants of aborted download which included the icon on launcher
