  • It could be an application like Mist, Geth or Parity, Electrum... Please close all the other programs on your computer or use the Ledger device on another computer.


3) If the "Unable to install app" error message on your Ledger Manager appears, it means:

  • there is not enough space on your device to install a new application, as your device memory is limited. Please go to this page to know more
  • the application you want to install is already installed on the device. To update the app, uninstall it first.


4) In "Firmwares", if the message "No items to display" appears:

  • your Ledger device is already updated
  • we are experiencing a temporary server issue that avoids access to the installation of applications and updates. In that case please try again to access the Ledger Manager later.
