Can't install what's new

Hi
I have updated my android to lollipop and I noticed my "what's new" app is gone(just to update it to latest version)
I tried to install it but it seems I have it...but yet I don't see it.
So I tried to update the app but didn't worked...
I have software update app too but that don't show up either!
How can I fix it?

Re: Can't install what's new

@uliwooly
I think I have found the best option!
If you have lucky patcher there will be an option "move to system/app" and I done it...needs restart anyway but it was successful

But that option is only available for some packages...like the what's new have this option...other not dunno why...they have move to internal or SD card...I think it knows what needs to be in system to enable that option...

Anyway problem fixed.

Uliwooly thanks for your help too. ^_^

PCC won't help you with updating apps. I am not sure, perhaps @uliwooly has some ideas.

Re: Can't install what's new

Pc companion tells me I'm up to-date,
However I have. 232 but. 264 is released.
Stranger is that I found an option in "settings/about phone/software update" and that checks and tells me system + app updates available in notification when I enter it but by clicking on the notifications...nothing happens...it just checks so what's new download it???
