I wonder if anyone has run in to this problem. I have a Lenovo tablet running Android Marshmallow that will update every app except for Google ones. Then I get an unable to update message. The ones that I have sitting waiting right now are Google Calendar, Google Earth, Street View, YouTube, Google Drive etc. Like I said I have no problem updating any other app, it is only Google owned apps that will download but not update.

I heard a few months ago that Google is only updating thier apps through a WiFi signal!
So if your trying to update through your carrier signal that might be the reason!

No I only do updates over wifi. In fact my tablet only uses wifi.

In that case you should call Google customer service and inquire about this!
Thier number in the US is;
855 836 3987

Just had a idea!
How old is your Lenovo tablet?
It could be that these updates are a new version of the app, and are to advanced to work in your tablet (incompatible for your device).
And that might be why the updates won't install!

Try a Factory Reset. But be careful to back up your already installed apps.

Something went wrong. My Galaxy S7 was updated 10 Dec.

A very rare scenario but when such cases happen, you may need to factory reset your device back to its original state, it has helped me a lot, but first backup up your device

Another possibility.
Google has a nasty habit of discontinuing support of older model devices.
This could be the case here!

So I had the same problem, it took me several days to search for the solutions. Have you solved it?
