Apps for Gear VR do not install on Android

I have consulted the net but not found a solution to the following problem: I have the Oculus App running and it shows me some apps which I could download. But on the page of the App, it only says "Gekauft" (bought), and it never installs. I have 20 GB internal space and even more on my SD card. This is a Galaxy S8. I have the Facebook App running and enabled. One suggestion was to enable the Facebook App Installer and Manager. There is no such App on my smartphone.

    Solved. You need to enable the display of "System Apps". Then activate if it is disabled.

    Hi, I can't download some apps for my gear vr on galaxy s8. It starts to download but then says "could not download" at the end. Everything that needs to be enabled , I.e. facebook, oculus etc is enabled. I've updated my phone's software. I've done everything oculus has told me to do, to mo avail. I have downloaded many before but it just won't work for some now. Any ideas?
