Google would not be Google if it did not break something from time to time. If you've wondered why your Updates tab in the Play Store app is empty, you can be sure you're not alone. It's a problem that affects pretty much everyone.

We have received several tips from readers and our own devices are affected as well. Not surprisingly, Reddit also stands out. It seems to be a worldwide problem, and editors in the UK and Australia are also complaining. Some have reported that clearing the cache fixed the problem (with the unintended side effect of adding the dark mode), others were not so lucky.

The problem has been occurring for at least three hours. We will update this post if it is resolved.
