Where did you obtain this .apk? One can download the Android App Center App (ACA) from the console under the "Downloads" page, and the file will be called "app_dist_app.apk". The more traditional method of installing the ACA, is to access the App Center server's URL ( from the device, which will redirect to the appropriate device OS download page.

Please provide more detail around the method you are using, the make/model of the Android device in question, and the Android version this device is running. Also, let me know if it is reproducible on any other device.

Are you allowing the installation of apps from unknown sources?

Hi Shrikant,

It is difficult to say without further information and investigation, or complete device debug log. When installing App Center, you want to ensure you use a publicly trusted SSL certificate, its corresponding private key, and associated certificate bundle. The certificate bundle is comprised of the SSL certificate's intermediate CA's certificates up to the parent root CA's certificate.

Also, when installing App Center (the post-installation-script-configuration-page), ensure you are accessing the "configurator" via the publicly accessible FQDN of the server (which should match the SSL certificate's Common Name (CN) field). The "Server name" field in the configurator must be the shortname of the server. For example:

Access the configurator via proper FQDN:

In the configurator, the "Server name" field should be automatically populated with the shortname: appcenter

If the FQDN of the server is:, then the SSL certificate must have a CN value of:

From the mobile device, you can simply access:, and it will automatically route you to the appropriate download page for our App Center App (ACA)

Hopefully this information helps, and is related to your issue. If you continue to experience issues, I'd recommend opening a technical support case.

Please create a separate thread for new issues.

I am not familiar with this error, so you may need to open an Enterprise Technical Support case. You could try changing the language to English to see if it's a localization issue.
