    I was able to install Netflix (2.4.1, build 950) from the Play Store after a reboot. Of course, I'm not a subscriber, so I can't test much other than the opening screen that wants me to log in. . I could sign up for a trial, but that is so much work.

    This issue is more common than you may think. Just saw this is entry in the Google technical support area:

    [#10230007] “Package File Invalid” error when downloading or updating apps

    We’ve received reports that some users are getting "Package File Invalid" while trying to download or update apps.

    We’re currently investigating a permanent solution, and there are no workarounds at this time.

    We’ll continue to update this page with developments, so check back soon.

    Issue first reported on: August 7, 2013

    Last updated on: August 9, 2013

    Doesn't offer a solution. Think I'll just wait until Google figures it out.

    This bull**** has me seriously eyeing an iPhone 5S. This is so damn stupid. Does the iPhone ever have these issues pop up? My nexus tablet has been killing itself trying tp update these apps. the battery is lasting 3 hours of scree on time, and now I can't update or install anything.

    So no announcement from Google yet eh? And no fix?....just work arounds. I'll bet the Android developers are just loving Google right now.

    Try again. It worked for me today.
    It was failed a few days ago, now it works. I didn't make any notable changes to my nexus 7.

    I'm not going to say this is the surefire workaround. But I saw somewhere to clear data from Google Services Framework. I did this, rebooted the phone and successfully updated Kindle and Runkeeper. These two apps were giving me the Package File is invalid error message when I tried to update them.

    At least Google gives you a notification when an app crashes or doesn't upload, unlike another OS.

    Google did announce that they're working on an update for this problem so it is just a matter of patience.
