Someone help me... All my games/apps are missing!

Today I turned on my Oculus Quest and all my games/apps were all of a sudden listed as unknown sources in my device's data. I decided to delete them and try to reinstall them. However, after deleting the unknown sources (and restarting) I went into the store on my quest to see if I could re-download them and the button that would normally show 'Purchase' now is just a spinning circle. I decided to give it a go on my phone which I thought gave me better success for a moment since the store on the iOS Oculus app actually allowed me to redownload the games but put them in a download queue... One that never actually downloads on my Quest.

One thing of note... The quest crashed/froze when I was using the Netflix app before this issue came up. Strangely, the Netflix app was the ONLY app still installed on my quest. And when I went to uninstall it the uninstall process simply stuck. So I went nuclear and deleted the device's data manually on the Oculus website. Now the Netflix app is gone... but it's also the only app the shows up as 'Uninstalled apps'...

What is going on?! I can see my purchases in my order history... I don't even know where to start.

Are we talking Quest or Rift/S here, because the original post was talking about Quest, and I don't think there is a repair option.

I see, so this is affecting Rift/S and quest users then.  My advice was aimed at Quest users.  I'm not sure how you would go on.  I guess its an issue with the Oculus Entitlement Server.  

Sad but you can't do fick all on the NET these days without it phoning home.

Try un-sync the android oculus app from the headset. Then just re-sync and it should sort it.
