Sometimes the app cannot update due to spontaneous server errors.

The setting is on manual update

Check if your smartphone settings are on manual update, as this can sometimes cause issues with downloading updates.

You can use the data on your phone to download updates as well.
However, this is not possible if your mobile data is turned off for the app, and you will only be able to download updates in a wi-fi environment.

You might not be able to download updates for the app if your device is low on available memory.
Quit other apps running in the background to remedy this problem, as this can create more memory space.
