I believe you all remember the green undeletable icon, well now I got a similar issue, as seen in the attached pictures, those four icons appeared after the latest update and deleting several apps
the green one caused by Calender feed, and vanish after deleting the app, or even by deleting the file org.desktop...... in hme,user,share,applicat.....
well, this one is different and that file does not exist, actually my File Box doesn't delete anything, it keeps saying there is an error in deleting
the second issue as seen in the last pic there is no option to delete the app (Klondike) the cards game
that's all, hpe you guys can help me with that, thanks

This has just started happening to me.
I reorganised all of my apps into folders and a couple of days later I was notified of about 6 app updates.
Updated them all and ended up with 2 of the odd download icons on the home screen.
I tried uninstalling each app individually from the App Manager, but the icons are still there.
If I try to uninstall from the icon itself, it comes back with the error:
"Can't Delete, Application Does Not Exist"
Anyone else got a solution?

I found a solution, but it's not an easy fix, you need to know your way around linux and you need root access to your device. IF YOU DON'T KNOW LINUX, DON'T EVEN TRY, GET A FRIEND TO DO IT FOR YOU!
In my case the root cause was the following stray desktop files:
they might be different in your case, but if you don't have either of those apps installed, remove them.
Now, to find out which .desktop files are causing the issue, the easiest way is to make a new folder and put them all in there. Afterwards you look at
and see if you can find a few lines where the first number at the end of the slash is not 0 (if the folder you just made is the first one, the number will be 1, if it's the 2nd, it'll be 2, etc, ...)
Once you've identified the files, remove the corresponding .desktop files with rm .
after a reboot the files came back, i think i finally fixed it by also removing the following files too:
