Some of the reasons for Error 7

The most common reasons for this error are:

1. You are trying to install a build for a different device. You need to make sure you download the zip for the correct device *and* variant.

2. Now you need to flash the migration zip, marked as ‘experimental’. This is needed as you are attempting to migrate from an unofficial build to LineageOS.

3. Your vendor/modem/bootloader is too old (or maybe too new). Flash the correct stock image for your device, before wiping data and attempting to install LineageOS again. This information should be listed on the device’s wiki page.

So these are the three major cause of error 7 problems. If you tried all the steps and still it is not fixed then I prefer you to factory reset your device.
