A Sharepoint application got stuck in the installation step and has been "installing" since yesterday, about 18 hours. I cant run the application from Visual Studio. I get the following errors: * Error occurred in deployment step 'Install Sharepoint Add-in' * Skipping the uninstall step because the Sharepoint Add-in in in an invalid state and cannot be uninstalled

I'm using SharePoint online. Tried upping the version number but then i still get the 'invalid state' error.

How can i force the application to stop?


There is a know outage on this feature in Office 365 right now. You are probably being affected by it. https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1318

  • Yup, started working on some of the tenants I have tested on. So should probably be fixed for everyone soon – Anders Aune Feb 7 '18 at 8:53
  • Yepp, seems like a fix is being slowly rolled out! – Robert Lindgren Feb 7 '18 at 8:54
  • Had that problem yesterday. But it works now. This seems to be some other error – Per Nissilä Feb 7 '18 at 10:35
