I may have had the same issue, what fixed me was downloading Luma and everything fresh copies and just replacing everything on my card then doing the install from the menu you can access by holding down like the trigger buttons and down on the D pad or something.

It may be data, but what it could really be, is a corrupted SD Card. If it is not letting you install .cias than that could mean some sort of a write error. Copy all data off of the card while you still can, and just get a new SD Card from Amazon, 128 GB cards only cost around $20, I suggest Samsung, or Sandisk, keep an eye out for fake knock off cards as well, because they plague the site.

Also this same error occurs for me whenever I try to install a .CIA from a random site on the web. Look for them on Github, or by using the homebrew browser Universal Updater.
