[Solved] Poweramp can not be installed. Free up some space and try again.

Poweramp is probably the BEST music play for Android available right now. It has a beautiful interface and gives the users an awesome response while in use.

It is my favorite 3rd party music player and I have made it the default music player on all my Android devices.

[Solved] Poweramp can not be installed. Free up some space and try again.

Few days back I decided to uninstall Poweramp and install it again (I keep testing stuff on my Android devices and Poweramp stopped working after I tried a few things).

I uninstalled both the Poweramp Full Version Unlocker and the main Poweramp app and it was a smooth process. But when I tried installing Poweramp again, it gave me this weird error Poweramp can not be installed. Free up some space and try again.

I was totally confused because I had about 337 MB free in my internal SD card.

I even checked the amount of storage available on my external SD card and it was more than enough. I tried installing the app again after a reboot but didn’t get any positive results.

After a few minutes of searching through various forums I found out that many users faced this exact same problem but I found out the solution on the official Poweramp forum.
