    It seems to be pretty common to have issues installing .apk files, although I'm not seeing my error addressed.

    I loaded an .apk file straight from the developer. (It's not available on Google Play.) I've turned off app scanning, I've allowed for unknown sources (since I know the source, even if the phone doesn't). I can download and execute the .apk, I can even click install. The app runs to install and either ends in a second or ~20 seconds with the error "App Not Installed".

    Everything I've read suggests I shouldn't be seeing this error, so I'm not sure what else to check. I'm pretty certain its the phone that isn't cooperating. I run Android 6.0 on a Galaxy S5. I've reached out to the developer to verify if my phone is simply not supported.

    How do I otherwise identify this roadblock and how can I get past it?

    Welcome to Android Central! Has the developer gotten back to you yet? That would be my first guess (i.e., the phone or its Android version isn't compatible).

    Not yet. I'll see about sharing the response when they do. I'm afraid that may be the case. Unfortunately, that's the only reason that makes sense right now.
