There could be many reasons Facebook Messenger refuses to install:

  1. Phone lacks free space necessary for installation.
  2. The OS of the phone where you want to install the application is outdated. Try using Software update from Settings > About Phone.
  3. The OS of your phone is having issues, therefore a Factory Reset is also recommended through Settings > Backup and Restore > Factory Reset (make sure to backup first!).
