can't install apks

+1
−2

An Android 10 Alcatel 3T tablet (armeabi-v7a) i have laying around for testing suddenly stopped being able to install apks by clicking on them. I can install apps just fine via f-droid and adb install, but clicking on an apk shows a pop-up that disappears way too quickly to be read (less than a second) and i just can't install it.

I've tried older apks which i know work, but now don't. I've even factory reset the tablet, to no avail.

Looking at logcat, when i click on an apk there's this, which i think might be relevant:

I'm at a loss. Is the package manager broken?

The apks work just fine on an Asus Memo Pad 8 with Android 4 and Samsung Galaxy A20e with Android 9 which has been upgraded to 11.

After rigorously and scientifically clicking on the apks a bunch of times i could glimpse "termux" in the ever vanishing pop-up, which indeed i had installed.

Uninstalled termux and can now install apks again. I assume termux took over the *.apk extension for the "open with" action or somesuch...
