Installed modded Play Store (through Lucky Patcher), install succeeded but Play Store would say not connected to the internet when launched, installed different versions of modded play store gave me the same result, gave up on modded Play Store and uninstalled it though Lucky Patcher and tried installing multiple versions from apkmirror, same thing, app installs, then tells me not connected to the internet when opened, so I thought Google Play Services was at fault, so I uninstalled both it and the Play Store through Titanium Backup, and even though I no longer have either installed, Play Store icon was still on the homescreen (won't launch though), did the Nougat update thinking it would overwrite the system partition and fix the issue, still the same.

Have though about flashing gapps, but thought it was too risky to install on non-AOSP, so now I don't know where to go from here, Help Please?

of course. Just download it via browser

Playstore ( unmodded ) : http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-store/google-play-store-7-3-07-k-all-0-pr-139935798-release/

Latest Play Service for x64 @480 DPI : http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-services/google-play-services-10-0-84-release/google-play-services-10-0-84-448-137749526-android-apk-download/

These are the right versions, no clue which you tried.

If youre on CM or the error still remains , download OpenGAPPS by any mirror and let it download the full AROMA package for x64. Flash the zip via twrp and select both missing apps. Watch your steps here, it asks you which to install and which to remove. For me the Aroma Control is a big buggy. You have to play with the volume rockers and the power button to go through the setup.

By the Way : I recommend to follow Google INC there to get the latest beta versions pre playreleased

For the future...
I would not recommend messing with Google apps and Lucky Patcher. This app can really mess up your accounts.
I also don't think it is allowed to discuss any Lucky Patcher related issues on these forums since large parts of "activities" that this app is used for are not completely legal.

The so-called modded APK from theirs can't be installed as it lacks a certificate. However if you achieve perfection after signing the APK and using their "second" method the following message persists:
Authentication is required. You need to sign into your Google Account.

I used one x86 ver of Phonesky, it could do well with Play Store WITHIN ONLY A FEW MINUTES. Then it showed "Service stops. " The modded APK looks promising, there must be some other tricks to bypass the Google Serivce check.
