Welcome to iMore! Reset your device by holding the power button and home button down simultaneously until you see the Apple boot logo. Once you're up and running try downloading Messenger again.
If you're still experiencing issues let us know.

On occasion I have noticed that kind of behaviour with a few of the apps that I use, including the regularly distributed updates; I think it's a bug. What I can confirm as workaround is to stop the automatic update (and decline to try again when prompted to) and go to the App Store and re-download the app directly (either the app, or the update if the problem was noticed with the latter).

I hope this helps.
