Unable to install apps from external sources on Android 6.0

    Hello,

    I upgraded to Marshmallow and did a full reset in the process so it was a clean install. 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 will be apprecited.

    I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
