If you have downloaded the 7z or RAR format from the internet, you have to extract these files to get the ZIP or IMG formats of those files that are compatible with the application. If the file format doesn’t match with the application, it will cause this error, and you wouldn’t able to work with the application

Method 3: Check App Storage Permissions

If the file manager app you use within Magisk does not have storage permission, you will encounter this error. Even if the file is not corrupted and completely compatible with the application, you will still have this error if the file manager doesn’t have the permissions. When the application starts the installation process, it will not be able to find the file.

The file gets stored in the file manager, and if that application doesn’t have permission, the file wouldn’t be stored, and Magisk will not be able to complete the installation process.

To make sure that it isn’t the problem, you have to check whether the file manager has the storage permission or not. As EX File Explorer is the most popular option of file managers used for this purpose, there are a few steps to enable the permission:
