I have a Lenovo Tab 4 10-inch tablet (Lenovo TB-X304F). Recently I had an error on it and had to perform a factory reset, and I'm experiencing problems reinstalling some apps I had installed before.
I have never rooted this tablet. Before the factory reset I did install some non-Google Play apps, but since the factory reset I have only installed apps from the Google Play Store. The tablet and apps are up to date, and the tablet is running Android 8.1.0.
Here is the most recent app problem. I purchased "Planescape: Torment" on November 11, and I installed it on my tablet around that time. However, now that I'm trying to install it again after performing the factory reset, I've had two errors, depending on the method I use to try to install it.
If I try to install it using the Google Play app on my tablet, it says "Your order is processing, your item will be available in a few minutes." (And I did not purchase this recently; I purchased it well over a month ago.) It lists the app as being $9.99 when I view it, as though I hadn't bought it, but when I tap on the button as though I'm going to purchase it, Google Play asks for the standard app permissions and then shows that error. It does exactly the same thing when I try to install it from the library list of all of my apps in the Google Play app.
If I try to install it from the Google Play website, the website tells me it's already installed on my tablet, which is no longer true. It used to be installed; it is not now.
I've cleared the cache and the data from the "Google Play Store" app and the "Google Play services" app. I chatted with Google Customer Support and they had me uninstall updates to the Google Play Store and then update it again, but that made no difference. I have of course turned the tablet off and back on. The Google Play Store doesn't seem to have registered that the app was uninstalled, and I don't know how to trigger that, and I have no idea what to do about the message I'm getting in the Google Play app itself on my tablet.
Does anyone know how I can resolve this and get my old apps reinstalled? Thanks!
