Problem while installing apps from external sources

Hello everyone,

 

I have an android phone.I upgraded it to Marshmallow and did a full reset in the process so it was a clean install. while searching on play several apps on play store i came across the Blockchain app advertising and wanted to install it. Now I can't seem to install any apps from outside the Google Play Store. I have enabled the setting of "Unknown sources - allow installation of apps from sources other than the Play Store". When I try install an .apk file I get the following error: "Parse error - There was a problem parsing the package". Specifically I'm trying to install games from the Humble Bundle app, but since this is happening to all games that I try to install I figure the problem isn't with the .apks but with my phone. Any ideas what would cause this?

 

Any help would be appreciated!!!

 

Thanks

Hi MyersKimb

 

Firstly, a warm welcome to our forums! Hopefully you find some benefit to being a part of our community!

 

In terms of this issue, I would not be sure of the resolution myself as it is not strictly a BT issue as much as it is a software issue. I am going to move this topic to our general chatter board and hopefully someone in our community will have the knowledge to assist you with this!

Yes, I also should say that Marshmellow is extremely unstable when it comes to open-source operations. And this can be said not only about mobile devices, but tablets as well. F.e., I have a smart notebook that I use for writing texts that I want to be immediately transformed into digital format. A very handy device, btw, - https://geeklah.com/best-smart-notebook.html. So, it also has connection issues with my smartphone that has Marshmellow OS. I am sure that it's the phone's fault. Sometimes the connection goes smoothly, sometimes there's no connection at all.
