For the first four types of error codes, you will need to make sure that you're connected to the proper network and that your phone has enough storage space. For the last one, you will need to make sure that your Microsoft account is set up properly. Then, restart your phone. If you're still having issues installing WhatsApp on your Nokia Lumia 520, you will need to contact Microsoft's customer support line to speak to a customer service representative who can help you troubleshoot the issue further. It is possible that your Nokia Lumia 520's hardware is malfunctioning which is preventing it from installing the application completely. The customer service representative will help you troubleshoot the problem over the phone and, if necessary, schedule a repair or replacement for you.
