I agree with James, A factory reset can solve this problem or you can try to download it using a PC to access Play Store and get it from there to install it on your phone.

Thanks for these comments.
Though I have no Google Play Store Icon any more I can access it via a google search, When I try to do any upgrade it starts to download and does not go beyond the downloading message.
Any further suggestions short of a factory reset?

So try to wipe cache and data of Play Store. You can do that accessing Setting/Apps/PlayStore. If it doesn't work, I can't see any other solution unless factory reset.

Since the play store is a system app! The only way to get it back is by either being rooted and installing it.
Download the play store from the browser on your phone, from a site like xda or here and sideload it.

Tried twice this morning, once with error then all apps upgraded having deleted google play store cache earlier.

I ran google play store from a google search. How can I get an icon for it on my desktop?

Install a launcher. If you wanna a total solution, a factory reset is the best.
