Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_TEST_ONLY: installPackageLI]

This means that, the shared application has some test packages, so unless those has been removed and source is recompiled, you will not be able to install this apk. But adb command provides a flag “-t” using which you can install the apps with test packages.

$ adb install -r -t YourAndroidApp.apk
