    Strangly, Files app on key2 cannot anymore start any .apk file for installation.
    What is weird is that those same .apk files CAN be started for installation - if started from Drive.
    Both Drive and Files DO have in settings/apps/ special access - install unknown apps- ON.
    Any idea why is this?

    No error message at all.
    I click on .apk file, and nothing happends...
    If I click on that same file from 'downloads' app, or from drive.... .apk starts normally...
    Seems like something is blocking FILES app to start .apk files....

    Somehow the "always" choice was selected for something other than the package installer.

    Any way to change that?

    You'd have to reset all app preferences.

    Did you give it permission to "install unknown apps" , under special access?

    Ofcourse, it was ON by default, but even if that permission is OFF, screen with question 'to allow it' should pop-up, and it Doesn't (if settings is to OFF), and if settings is to ON, again nothing happends...
    If you try to start this .apk files from 'downloads' app /drive/google, even if setting is OFF for this permission, screen with option would pop to enable this permission...
    Very weird
