That usually happens with the device has been rooted (allows more control over the system). Your device must have been altered BEFORE you bought it by the previous owner.

But now you can put a custom recovery (I use Philz Touch 6.07.9 Recovery) & ROM (I use Omega ROM) on your phone, after all it's your phone do with it as you wish.

Re flash your firmware to bring it back to non modified status and then you'll be able to stay on official channels if you're not interested in rooting and such.
