Description Miha Markic 2016-02-05 15:26:10 UTC
Sometimes after Rebuild solution and then Start debugging I'm getting the error below when deploying to Nexus 6 device. (there are more than 3GB free on device).
On subsequent Start debugging the debugger starts normally.

Detecting installed packages

Installing application on device

Deployment failed because there was insufficient space on the device to install the package. Please make space and try again.

It does happen even if I reboot the device.
It doesn't happen when running in emulator (MS Android Emulator, Android 6.0.0).
Nexus 6 runs the latest Android.
Comment 4 Greg Munn 2016-02-05 16:53:52 UTC
Can you get the android logs (Help | Open Log directory) please. 

Also, from terminal try `xbuild /t:install > install.log' from within your project folder and attach the resultant install.log file.
Comment 5 Greg Munn 2016-02-05 16:54:58 UTC
Sorry, just saw that this was windows, use 'msbuild' instead of 'xbuild'

Comment 7 Greg Munn 2016-02-05 16:59:42 UTC
You might need to try to deploy again, that log doesn't contain any logs from a deployment - a new log file is created each time XS is started.

Comment 10 Greg Munn 2016-02-05 17:12:11 UTC
Thanks Miha, sorry to ask this, but could you do the /t:install again but I need you to have diagnostic output on.

   msbuild /t:install /v:diag

I don't know why, but we're getting INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE returned from `pm install`

what size is `bin\Debug\com.aioss.aps.android-Signed.apk` on disk?
Comment 13 Miha Markic 2016-02-05 17:22:00 UTC
It is mere 2.436KB. I'll try "pm install" directly.
Comment 14 Miha Markic 2016-02-05 17:24:54 UTC
Indeed, adb install ...apk yields
first time. Second time it is a success.
Weird but obviously not Xamarin bug.
Comment 15 Greg Munn 2016-02-05 17:31:49 UTC
yes, very odd. I'm sorry I can't really resolve this for you.
Comment 16 Miha Markic 2016-02-05 17:48:40 UTC
Don't be. You helped a ton.
Digging further I've found out that if I uninstall package using "adb uninstall -k package" it will deploy without problems.
But if I uninstall it with "pm uninstall -k package" then it will fail the first time. Go figure.
