Pixel 6 - Chrome shows Update Available but Never Installs - Stuck on Pending
1
I set up my Pixel 6 yesterday and noted the Chrome Browser shows a Red Icon in the upper right indicating there is an Update Available (screenshot attached). When I go to update it in Google Play Store, the install just hangs with a Pending status. If I move away from the Window, the install just stops.

I have followed previous posts dating back to 2019 where key applications caches are purged and updates uninstalled etc. None of that fixes the problem.

Hello - thanks for the response.

I did clear the Play Store Cache, following a Solved post by someone who had a similar problem on their Pixel 4XL a year or so back (found here in the Community).  But that did not clear the Update Indicator on Chrome.

I'm not sure what fixed it, but in the course of parallel troubleshooting the lack of a Tools menu in the Google Photos Edit screen (looking for Magic Eraser) - I did the following:

I cleared cache on the Google Photos app.
I ran an update check on My Apps in Google Play Store (this may be the key)

Although NEITHER Chrome or Google Photos showed a pending update - there were ten apps that did - after I did so, I checked Chrome and the update notification was gone, and in Google Photos the Tools menu option finally appeared when I clicked Edit.

It's unfortunate that the indicators in Google Play Store don't specifically point to an update pending; it appears a combination of persistence and just "poking around" is the solution in this case. As a partly technical person, this troubles me, but I have to accept it as one of the idiosyncrasies of a particular ecosystem.
