In order of ease…
1) Fix “archive bit” in Hekate.
2) Try a different nsp (This one might be corrupt?) IGNORE…you already did.
3) Reinstall latest sigpatches from iTotalJustice
4) Format SD card FAT32 and start from scratch.

Yea I agree use ITotalJustice SigPatches always! https://github.com/ITotalJustice/patches/releases
And if that don't help-
Update Atmos to most recent, delete all files on sd card (except "Nintendo") and replace with all new files. https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases
then of course add those Sigpatches. Can add either or both sets, won't hurt if both.
Good luck and have fun! There is also Switch Noobs Thread already that will list tons of info that may help. https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-noob-paradise-ask-questions-here.488277/page-1448

Thank you. I tried updating ams and sigpatches and it didn't work :c It's a bit scary to format the sd card in case it continues to not allow games to be installed. I'm thinking of buying a new sd card (a bigger one I wanted) and give it a try.

Try what @BigOnYa said and delete+reinstall /atmosphere.

Honestly though, if the card is in bad enough shape not to allow games to be installed then you’re pretty much screwed with that card sooner or later anyway.

I forgot to mention, but if you are on an earlier FW like 11.0, and try to install newer games that require higher FW like 13.0, it will state that in certain installers. You may have to update your FW or if possible "patch" the game to work with older FW; if that's your case. :grog:
