I'm not even installing a game, just another app that takes a few mb's.
I go into storage and see I have 800mb left.
What's the problem?

it says: "_____ couldn't be installed. Free up some space and try again."

i'm actually having problem with only one app- vplayer.
can anyone help?

I can install other apps no problem. I'm trying to download vplayer from the play market, and it just wouldn't install. It says not sufficient storage, but I do have sufficient storage, and I can install other apps no problem.

I had vplayer previously, but uninstall it, is there anyplace I can clear the data? this is quite frustrating

You can try deleting the .odex file for that app under /data/app (I think you might need a root explorer)

if you are rooted, otherwise
open Terminal

Code:
su
cd /data
cd /app
ls
rm (packagename.odex)
ls will allow u to see the list of all the files in that folder and help u type the exact name with ease.
