This is the right place for Ren'Py help. Please ask one question per thread, use a descriptive subject like 'NotFound error in option.rpy' , and include all the relevant information - especially any relevant code and traceback messages. Use the code tag to format scripts.
Quoted problem reports:
"Keeps telling me that the package is invalid. I don't know a lot about coding, but I tried opening the files and it keeps telling me that the android manifest is corrupted."
Upon attempted installation, "it takes about a minute to stage then another to get to the point of saying it is invalid".
"I ran into the same issue with and without a file manager, samsung internet, chrome and google and all the same message, package appears invalid"
"i dont believe the android mod link works anymore it says the app package is invalid."
Affected devices listed: Samsung s20 5g and Samsung S10, Samsung S21 Ultra, as well as Bluestacks.

How might one go about troubleshooting this? Thanks in advance.

For many devices, the limit on apk size is 2gb.The finished .apk is just under 3gb.

It's unlikely that a device would have a setting to change that limit either.
If your game is 3GB, then you should really be looking at what's taking up most of that space and whether it actually needs to be that big.
You may be able to reduce the size drastically without changing the game's content.
For example, you can save a significant amount of space by redoing your sprites as layeredimages, with the base image, outfit, expression, etc. on separate layers.
Or by compressing your images, audio files, video files, etc.
