Lookout was the problem for me. Even though I force stopped the app, turned off everything that was said here. It finally worked once I took off Lookout as a default for other apps. Went to install the apk and it asked me the choices of how I want to install it. So it's because Lookout is set to default :) .

You posted 2 yrs ago lol but I will answer it because someone else surely will have the same problem. All you will need to do is disable lookout security.

Glad you got the problem fixed!
Just one question,
The apk you were trying to install!
I'll bet that it was not a Google app!
Lookout is a Google security app. And Google probably programmed it to reject any apps but theirs!
Just another one of Google's underhanded business tactics!
I used to have lookout in my phone, untill i discovered that Google uses lookout as a back door to install unwanted updates and bloatware apps in our devices!
That's when I uninstalled lookout permanently!
Fortunately lookout was not factory installed app in my phone so I was able to get rid of it all together!
