I had this problem too, I just updated and now it cannot find file on my device . I did notice this update is smaller than the one earlier today first one is over 12mb this one is 11.99mb.
 
Re: Package file is invalid error message cadizftp 6/30/12 3:10 PM
I updated again an now it is working .
Thank you Google):
Re: Package file is invalid error message AndroidUK 6/30/12 3:12 PM
I tried uninstalling the old version and then installing the new one - it said installed and now when I click the icon in the apps mine too says it can't find the app !

Very frustrating. Seems that people with a similar problem in the past with other apps have found it to be a shortage of memory available but think I've got enough spare on my 7" Tab

Internal: 1.46 GB free
DB data: 79.6 MB free
SD card: 107GB free
External SD Card: 28.4GB free

I can get it to install, but that's about it. It brings me to the account selection screen and gives me a connection error. The app crashes shortly after.
Re: Package file is invalid error message AndroidUK 6/30/12 3:18 PM
Just tried again and this time it worked - I suspect Google have updated something in the last 30 minutes or so.

Re: Package file is invalid error message Masonmd 7/13/12 1:23 PM
Still no response to my problem. Very disappointing. I really wish someone could help me update G+ on my phone.
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jennie S 7/13/12 1:36 PM
Hi Massonmd,

Sorry to hear that you're still experiencing an issue with the update.  Have you already tried clearing your application data yet? If not, please try uninstalling, clearing your data, and then reinstalling the app (v.3.0.1.31545355).  Please let us know if that helps resolve the issue.

Re: Package file is invalid error message Jabot 7/17/12 1:27 AM
Same problem here (invalid package file) when trying to install Google+ for the first time in my phone (HTC Desire with Android 2.2)
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jennie S 7/17/12 1:41 PM
Hi Jabot - Have you also already tried the troubleshooting steps Brian referenced above?
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jabot 7/17/12 3:18 PM
Hi Jennie!

I can't follow Brian's steps, I have never had Google+ installed on my phone. I'm trying to install Google+ for the first time.

Re: Package file is invalid error message Masonmd 7/17/12 3:25 PM
Yes. I've uninstalled. cleared my app data, and tried reinstalling. That did nothing to help.
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jabot 7/24/12 12:11 AM
Still unable to install with the same message (invalid package file), no news?
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jennie S 7/24/12 1:49 PM
Hi Jabot,

Have you already tried downloading the newest version (v.3.0.1.32017166), which was released on 7/19?  Please let us know if you're still running into this issue.
Re: Package file is invalid error message Jabot 7/24/12 11:57 PM
Hi Jennie,

I've tried this morning and it worked perfectly, thank you!

BUT :-) now I have another problem, I can't log in. When I try to log in with my Google account I receive a message saying that it was impossible to contact the server. I will check the groups to see if there is a topic on that.


Re: Package file is invalid error message Jennie S 7/26/12 4:08 PM
Hi Jabot,

Glad to hear you were able to download the app.

Are you still seeing an error message when trying to sign in?  If so, would you mind following up on this thread?

Thanks,
Jennie

Hello i have an LG optimus. And every time i try to download it says error package file invalid. I have tried emptying history and cache still nothing, and i cant install any thing what do i do??
Re: Package file is invalid error message Alex Hopkins 6/1/13 2:16 PM
Re: Package file is invalid error message RAJAT JAIN 6/1/13 5:34 PM
After clearing cache download hideman app. As you can't download any app from play store, download it's apk from Google search results. Setting up a VPN connection through hideman app certainly worked for eradicating this error.
Re: Package file is invalid error message Oliver Barot 6/9/13 12:22 AM
I have tried even factory reset but still, not working. I am using Samsung Galaxy Pocket (S5300B). I am searching the Supported Devices and it is included.
Re: Package file is invalid error message Oliver Barot 6/9/13 12:32 AM
How to uninstall the system applications like Google + and Google Play??. I have cleared everything like Google Play, Google Plus, Google Service Firmware, and even I did Wipe Factory Reset.

Re: Package file is invalid error message Joe Dimuantes 7/16/13 1:37 PM
I've tried all of these things, plus two factory resets, restarting my router, everything I can do, and I can't install ANY apps from the Play Store. Is there a fix in the pipeline for this? Is it even being worked on? It seems to be a very, very common problem.
