    How, exactly, are you trying to install or update or to see internal storafe?
    Are you using some application? Or a command? Exactly how can we reproduce the issue?

    Your description is too vague. Tell us EXACTLY how to reproduce the issue.
    What are you clicking on?
    Or are you using a terminal?
