Ionic cloud notifications event not working after ionic deploy update


Ionic push notification event listener stops working after the $ionicDeploy updates on Android, when a push notification is sent, the notification is shown on the top bar with the app open but the event is never fired.

The event works if I remove the Ionic deploy part. (When the app does not update).

This is how I’m handling the event:

$scope.$on('cloud:push:notification', showPopUp);

Ionic deploy code:

    function downloadUpdates() {
      $ = 'dev';
        .then(function(snapshotAvailable) {
          if(snapshotAvailable) {
              template: 'Updating...'
            .then(function() {
