What Jacque said;

Originally you had built the standalone with LC 9.0.1 rc1 (and installed it
in the device), so its manifest had targetSDKversion=26.
Then you built a new one with LC 9.0.0, so it had its targetSDKversion
equal to the minSDKversion, as specified in the standalone settings, and
probably lower than 26.

Android does not allow you to push an "update" of an app to the device,
that has a lower targetSDKversion than the original installed app.

So the problem was resolved once you deleted the old app.
