The Play Store version is the official version, which often has updates pushed out on a regular basis. Developers put effort into maintaining the play store version. If you are using an APK version downloaded from elsewhere, there is both the danger that you have put malware on your device and the high probability that it's older than the official release.

That seems to be a MIUI-specific error. From the Locus Map help (translated by me): This error occurs with Xiaomi devices, but has nothing to do with Google Play Store. Error -26 is caused by MIUI's package manager and stands for INSTALL_FAILED_SYSTEM_INCOMPATIBLE. Which means: for some unknown reason MIUI thinks the app is incompatible, and refuses to ...

It seems that when disabling Data on WLAN only, in the Download app, Google Play's app download started. See screen cap. Strange that the Download app and Google Play are connected.

No. As a protection against the OS going badly wrong and leaving the CPU running at full tilt until the battery runs down (or more likely, until the device overheats), you can always turn off the device by holding down the power button for several seconds. This isn't under the control of the OS, so there's no way an app can override it.

There seems to be a similar thread here, so you aren't entirely alone. Just disable that app for now since it's bloatware anyway! (Switched comment to an answer as per comments)

Believe in future!!! Because in these days of June/July 2016, there is a new feature in the Play Store app: After selecting "My apps & games" I can see now: Installed ... All ...Beta <- There you can see all beta apps now !! (available at least on two devices with android 4.4.4 and 5.1)

I was having the same problem, and all the other answers didn't solve the problem. However I figure a solution to solve the problem. Please note this works specifically for games, but I have a theory near the end that it will then allow you install apps with the right account. The problem lies with what account the downloaded and installed application is ...
