Can't install apps due to existing package conflict

Using Troypoint, attempting to download/install “Fast Task Killer” or “SD Maid 5.1.10” but keep getting the message when installing “The package conflicts with an existing package by the same name” but those apps are not on my internal or external storage…a real puzzlement. I cleaned the Troypoint Folder with maintenance setting but still get message. Apps were on an external drive no longer available. Need a utility not previously loaded that will let me clean existing app leftovers.

Sup Garyd & welcome…

Quick suggestion if you’ve got 1 of the file explorers…

Go to
Internal storage…
Download folder…

See if the old APK download is still there…

Or check the Android folder-data…

See if somethings there …hope this helps

Thank you, zorlac
I have deleted everything I could find but no luck yet…
I may have to reset or format ext and int to fix, but
that could be a lot of work.

I use esFileexplorer and then do a search for APK and then delete the ones in the folder. Rescued quite a bit of space. Not sure if deleting the useless apk would help as it appears that it’s conflicting with what appears to be an already installed app. Have a look in “setting>applications>manage installed apps” and see if in fact the app us already installed. If so delete and try again

Hey G…
Just a thought…

Troypoint Rapid app vers is 5.0.7. ? (maybe u didnt catch an update?)
