Package installer keep stopping

Everything was working normally until I updated the app. After that I wanted to update Librera but it didn’t work instead it showed: Package installer keep not working. I tried to install another app and the same thing appears. The same thing happened to someone

Did you try to debloat your device? to disable or uninstall packages?

I cleared the cache of Package Installer, reinstalled the system, but none of that worked. I install f-droid, update the repositories and then update f-droid. I try to install any app but it always comes out: Package installer keeps stopping

But looking at your error details, it looks like some issue with an update/upgrade upon not from F-Droid. Did you check on MI forums? Suggest you raise a query/issue there.

Solution: install f-droid but do not update it. another way is not to update to But I don’t understand, I use and before updating f-droid everything was fine

Can anyone use ADB and get a logcat of the moment you try to install a package so maybe we can see the actual error? Or confirm that it’s the same as the linked forum.

Also, what is the last F-Droid Client version that installs other apps fine?

eg. do test 1.18.0:




The version in which it works is 1.17.0 I am going to investigate what adb is

It seems like a bug in the package installer app. Try clearing its cache or updating the system software, and restart your device.
