Android Question Package Appears to be Corrupt

For 2 days now, every newly (simple app with a button) built B4A app I install to test in Debug or Release mode to the same ASUS ZenPad 8.0, now displays this error after installing.
Any existing app I install to the same tablet, does not have this error.
The ASUS Settings/Security/Unknown sources is On.

I've reinstalled B4A onto Win10 desktop and still the error occurs.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled B4A Bridge and B4A Designer from the tablet.
Same error occurs.

I tried a Samsung SM-T230NU and Lenovo 7", and the same new app installed and ran every time.
Is there something on the ASUS tablet that would cause the app to get corrupted, or???

Please help.
Thanx,
Mark S.

So I just uncheck the Logs > Filter option?
I did that and there's no error or logging reported back to the IDE when the error occurs.

That's it.
In Project > Build Configurations > Package, I changed it to something else besides B4A Example.
And it installed and I was able to run the new app without error.

Erel, why would the error continue with the same Package name over and over?
What do I do if I get this error for an existing app, either in Debug or Release mode?

Thanx,
Mark S.

The error appears on the device immediately after the install, "Package Appears to be Corrupt".
This message is not given by the app, but the installer, as I would assume.

Hi Erel,
Yes, I uninstalled the original app.
There was no icon file assigned to the app.
OS bug, I would agree, especially when the app installed successfully on other tablets.
