Hello people, first i'm sorry if i'm on the wrong forum. My problem is in the title, i can't download any .apk file, when i try to download one from chrome, it shows me an unknown error, when i try to download from firefox same thing, when i try to download an apk file on my computer and then transfer it into my phone in my file manager (on my phone) it says that the apk is 0 bytes, when i try to install it, my phone says "A problem occured while analysing the package". I don't understand why this is happening i mean i have no anti-virus, no task killer nothing, please help thanks.

Yes, there are two options related to apk downloading and installing in Settings of Android devices.

Settings - Advanced settings - Security,

  • Download apps from unknown sources
  • Install apps from unknown sources

Did you try downloading different APK files from different websites?
Maybe you have anti-virus or something blocking app installed on your device which blocks downloading .apk files through internet.
