You can't simply install an apk as you did installed on a real android device (Officially).

you can try this:

1)Go to www.apkpure.com and download your apk

2)Install adb-tools by running this comment inside the terminal

sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb

3)Run the following command to install your apk

adb install /your_apk_folder_loaction/your_apk.apk
  • did that but got this error .... adb: failed to stat Sheet_v11.6.1_apkpure.com.apk: No such file or directory May 11, 2019 at 11:19
  • check your if the apk is present in that folder May 13, 2019 at 11:13
