Since you cannot overwrite an already installed app, the routine should give the caller some kind of clue instead of silently failing.

Can't we?

adb install -r <apk> works afaik... can devicemanager do a similar thing?

we have most of the error handling in place, but I think we don't handle all the scenarios properly.

updt should work, which means we should be able to update from an existing app.

If we don't update properly, we should error out, but as it stands, from the Android SUT perspective, I think this bug is invalid.
