Unable to find package: io.appium.settings


when i list all packages with
adb shell dumpsys package io.appium.settings

i see ‘‘package=io.appium.settings’’ but i have this message
Unable to find package: io.appium.settings

and i can’t uninstall it

First fire below commands one by one in CMD and retry

adb uninstall io.appium.settings
adb uninstall io.appium.uiautomator2.server
adb uninstall io.appium.uiautomator2.server.test
adb uninstall io.appium.unlock

appium will freshly install all required files again.

i have this message
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown package: io.appium.settings

adb shell pm list packages
see whether package is present in output list or not.

ok it s normal… but i uninstalled all packages that you have mentionned
I would like to install the last version of io.appium.settings.
but on my appium directory, the last build dated about 2017

update you appium version then.
latest version will come with latest version of settings app.
then run your script, latest appium will install all latest packages.:wink:

i think i found my error, because i could update too in my ENV virtual ?

i dont know why i have this error :
Error: Unknown id: io.appium.android.ime/.UnicodeIME
Error: Unknown id: io.appium.settings/.UnicodeIME

Hi @langme, I have a similar problem. I need to install io.appium.settings but in the adb packages list this package is not found. Do you know how I can solve this problem? I build the emulator with the following requirements:

Appium version : 1.22.1

Emulator technical data:

  • Android Version 7.1 (API 25)
  • build-tools;25.0.0
  • platforms;android-25
  • system-images;android-25;google_apis;armeabi-v7a (I use this image because in pipeline with docker i read in documentation that acceleration hardware is not possible with x86 or x86_64)

Adb Version:

  • Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.41 Version 31.0.3-7562133

Docker :

  • OS: Centos7
  • Java: 11-openjdk
  • Python: 3.7.

Thanks for your help!
