When you are using a Search Head Cluster you need to install apps via the deployer. Not by uploading to a single search head.

Have you checked to see if there was an error during the install? Have you checked your splunkd.log?

Yes , i have checked the logs . I get the below error

ApplicationUpdater - Error reloading upgrade_readiness_app: handler for collections (access_endpoints /storage/collections/config): Service Unavailable

Were there any other logs for upgrade_readiness_app or was this the only one?

/storage/collecitons/config is a API call for KV store endpoints to access and create collections. So its very interesting that this is error message for an attempted installation.

Yes , thats the only error in splunkd logs , although in the conf.log i found this
,{"name":"upgrade_readiness_app","action":"deleted","checksum":":q!q
"},
I am trying to add the all on the single search head , The search head is in cluster ,just wondering if i have to install that app through the SHC

Now that we know that your search head is clustered, you need to install the app from the deployer as @nickhillscpl said.
