    I was trying to open a .pkg file, when I get a popup saying "This file can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash"

    And I found out that you can deactivate gatekeeper by going in to the settings.
    But when I try to click "Allow applications downloaded from anywhere" it just jumps back to "Mac app store".

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? :/

    Not sure why it's doing that, make sure you're unlocking the lock before changing the setting.

    Mountain Tweaks allows you to completely disable Gatekeeper.
