Blackberry appworld disappeared and I cannot reinstall

Hi all. I turned my phone off and on a little while ago and my blackberry appworld icon disappeared. It comes up with the following error message: Error: Invalid manifest or application descriptor.

The "MIDlet-Name" attribute is missing
I have a blacberry bold 9900 and my sim is with giff gaff. I need to download an app and I can't seem to do so on the net using my phone either. Very annoying and none of the forums have been of any use. Any help would be appreciated

Hi Ebz

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

On your Homescreen Go to Options > Device >  Application Management > Locate and delete BlackBerry World from there. After deleting do a Battery Pull Restart like this device POWERED ON remove the battery wait a min. then re-insert it back .

 

After reboot from your BlackBerry Browser browse www.blackberry.com/appworld to download the recent version of BlackBerry World.

 

Please try it and let us know.
