Google Play Store Errors and Fixes

I’m collecting various errors of Google Play Store, and hope it can help someone.

error 491

problem:
downloads and updates impossible.

solution:
remove your google account by going to the settings for your device, then accounts and google. Hit remove account. Reboot your android and add the account once again. Next, in the settings, go to apps (applications) and swipe to find ‘all’ of your apps. Scroll down to google services, then click clear data and finally force stop.

error 498

problem:
interruption of downloads from the google play store

solution:
the problem is that the cache of your device is full. Delete unneeded applications and files. Restart your smartphone in recovery mode by pressing the volume down, power and home buttons (for samsung devices) or volume down and power (for most other devices). This mode provides a few more options. Select wipe cache partition by navigating between options with the volume rocker. Confirm using the power button.

error 919

problem:
downloading the app works but it does not open once downloaded.

solution:
there is simply no more space on your android. Eliminate all unnecessary data: Music, videos or large applications.

error 413

problem:
downloading applications or updates is impossible. If you use a proxy, remember that it may cause problems with the operation of the google play store.

solution:
in settings, find apps, then swipe to all. Scroll down to google services and tap on clear data and then force stop. Do the same with the google play store app and clear the cache from your internet browser.

error 923

problem
the download is impossible: Error while syncing your google account or insufficient cache memory.

solution
remove your google account and delete any useless applications that are just taking up space. Next, reboot your device in recovery mode. Select wipe cache partition and start your device as usual. Don’t worry, your personal data won’t be deleted. Set up your google account once again.

error 921

problem
you can’t download an app.

solution
try deleting the cache of the google play store application. If this doesn’t work, delete all the play store application data, but please be advised that this will consequently delete all the settings that you’ve already made. As a last resort, remove your google account, restart the device and enter it again.

error 403

problem
the download is impossible. This usually happens when two google accounts are used to buy applications on one device.

solution
go the google play store with the correct google account. Uninstall the application in question. Next try to get the app from google play again and click the purchase button.

error 492

problem
it’s impossible to install an application due to the dalvik cache.

solution
under settings, find apps, then swipe to all and scroll down to google services. Here, select clear data and then force stop. Do the same on the google play store app.

Note: If the problem is not solved, try deleting the dalvik cache. To do this, enter the custom recovery mode (only if you have root). Another solution is to complete a data wipe/ factory reset. This option applies to all users and can be done in recovery mode. Beware, it will wipe your data so make sure you have backed up everything you wish to keep.

error 927

problem
the download is impossible because an update of the play store is in progress.

solution
wait a few minutes until the google play store is completely upgraded. If the problem persists, go to settings, then apps, swipe to all and locate the google services. Tap on clear data and then force stop. Do the same with the google play store application.

method 2: If you are using a wifi connection that requires a webpage login, then your authentication has probably expired. Log in to the apn again via your android browser. Open google play store and run the app update again . If that didn’t work the problem is with the wifi network itself.

Method 3: Simply switch to another wifi network and run the update. The error 911 should disappear for the new wifi network.
