do the update this way please.

Open the web browser on the Kindle, go to google and type in facebook 3.4 and click on the top one and then click download and install and then click open.

The update should then be complete.

Still didn't work but thanks anyway.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.

then we need to reset the Kindle in order to do the update.

This is going to delete all the data and return the Kindle to new, so you will need to download your books again.

To do this,

Slide down the top menu and tap "More...":

On the Settings screen tap "Device":

At the very bottom you'll see the option, "Reset to Factory Defaults". Underneath it says, "Removes all personal data from your device."
Tap it:

The "Factory Data Reset" warning box opens up and says, "You are about to reset your Kindle to factory defaults, which will remove all of your personal information, Amazon account information, downloaded content, and applications. Continue?"

Tap "Yes".

Let it complete and when it has, the Kindle is as new.

Register it again with your Amazon account and you will then be able to update your Facebook app.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
