Causes of the problem
In the translation, the error text sounds like "The download failed, because the required resources were not found." Usually, it occurs immediately after the launch of the application (usually a game), but it happens that this error appears after installing the next official update to the program.

- No internet connection when you first start the program;
- There is either no incorrect cache for the program, or the cache is placed by the user in the wrong directory;
- In the phone settings, the ability to install programs from foreign resources is blocked;
