I updated to Android 5 OTA on two Nexus 7 2014 and 2013, after upgrading all the AIR apps were removed, native apps remained. I tried to install the apps from Google Play and i got an 505 install error. 

The logcat error is below:

E/Finsky(4449): [1] PackageInstallerImpl.handleCommitCallback: Error -505 while installing air.com.123.456 INSTALL_FAILED_UPDATE_INCOMPATIBLE: Package couldn't be installed in /data/app/air.com.123.456-1: Package air.com.123.456 signatures do not match the previously installed version; ignoring!

The apps are the same as before upgrading , they were not updated, the certificate is the same.

Anyone else seen this problem, is there an AIR patch?

I can install the app by "adb uninstall" command then re installing from Google play.

I forgot to mention the problem happens on apps using AIR upto 15.302, some are on AIR 14 still. I have also got the same error reported by a few users who upgraded to 5, also using Nexus 7, is it nexus 7 only im not sure, i dont have other Nexus devices to test on.

I found this issue , Kitkat and Lollipop generate different fingerprints (SHA1) for same certificate, when cert was generated with adt tool , is it related?

Android 5.0 Lollipop users are mostly facing this issue of Unknown Error 505. Still there is no such working solution for this issue error 505 but you can try factory reset and clearing cache and data of Google Play Store this may work for this.

Do you have logcat output? There seems to be other issues that cause this error specifically with permissions , see below.

Hi, same problem for me. A user reported the 505 error on my app after upgrading to Android 5.0 on his Nexus 7 2012.

Unfortunately I have no solution for him.

Hi all,

I was aware of a certificate problem with in-app billing in Lollipop and we have escalated this issue with Google.  I was not aware of apps being removed.  Unless this is cert related, I'm not sure who is working on this with Google.  I'll follow up internally and see if I can get more info.
