    I couldn’t download vanced youtube from the manager app because I wanted to update it.

    Then I deleted vanced youtube and couldn’t get it downloading again.

    So as per your instructions, I went into the apps and deleted microG and then I could install youtube vanced apk after I re-installed microG.

    It gave me an error saying downloading black.apk failed when I first tried to update and then redownload consequently.

    Thanks again.
