Common Google Play Store error codes and how to fix them

Has this ever happened to you? You find an interesting application and try to download it, only to receive a cryptic error message containing seemingly random numbers from the Google Play Store. Pretty annoying, right? Here are some of the most common Google Play Store errors, what they mean, and how to solve them.

The solutions for the errors described below are based on the experiences of the AndroidPIT editors, as well as readers and moderators from the forum. If you encounter any other problems with Google Play, feel free to share your experiences in the comments and forum.

Note: you'll see that many of these solutions have steps in common, e.g. clearing cache and data of Google services. If you don't see your code in this list, it may still be worth troubleshooting using one of these solutions anyway.

Google Play - Error DF-BPA-09 'Error Processing Purchase'

Problem

Google Play Error Processing Purchase DF-BPA-09 happens quite often when trying to download an app. This problem won’t go away if you simply try downloading again, so you’ll need to go into the settings.

Solution

The problem is not due to individual users, but comes from Google Play itself, so we’re hoping it will be fixed in the near future. In the meantime, here is what you can do:

  • Go into the Settings of your device
  • Tap on Apps or Applications Manager (the name varies depending on your device).
  • Swipe to the All column.
  • Scroll down until you see Google Services Framework
  • Finally, choose Clear data and then OK.

If this doesn't work, go on to the Google Play site on your PC and install the app that is giving you issues on your smartphone or tablet from there. When you go back to your device, the install should work.

Google Play – Error DF-BPA-30

Problem

The cause of this error comes from Google servers themselves. First, we should tell you that waiting is a good idea, but other solutions work for some users.

Solution

  • Open the Google Play Store on the web (use a PC, for example)
  • Then choose an application to install on your Android, which should logically send you the infamous error [DF-BPA-30]
  • Get back on your smartphone and try the download, which should now be operational again

Otherwise, you can try to delete the data or clear the cache of "Google Play Services".

Google Play – Error DF-DLA-15

Problem

Downloading an update or an application may fail with this error. 

Solution

The first thing to do is to clear the cache and data of the Play Store app. To do this, go into the Settings, tap Applications and look for the Play Store. You can then delete the cache and data. On some smartphones, you must enter the Storage tab to see this option. 

This should fix the problem, but if it persists, you have to go to your account settings and delete your phone's Google account. Once you've done that you just need to re-add it.

Google Play - Error rh01

Problem

Error retrieving information from server.

First solution

Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select both Clear data and Clear cache. Do the same for Google Services Framework.

Second solution

Remove and re-add your Gmail account, restart your device and then re-add your Gmail account.

Google Play - Error rpc:s-5:aec-0

Problem

Error retrieving information from server.

Solution

Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select Clear cache and Uninstall updates. Do the same for Download Manager and Google Services Framework.

Google Play – Error retrieving information from server

Problem

This error message often appears when updating or downloading an app. Google's servers are unable to retrieve information from your Google account. You can delete and re-register, but wait a few hours to see if the problem persists first. Sometimes it'll just take care of itself.

Solution

  • Go to the Settings> Accounts> Google 'to delete your Google Account'
  • Once this is done, you must reboot your device, then re-synchronize the account
  • Finally, open the Settings> Applications> All> Google Services Framework. Inside, you must click Options 'Clear Data' and 'Force Stop'

Google Play – Error BM-GVHD-06

Problem

This error appears when you want to use a Google Play card. The problem seems to exist in several countries.

Solution

First, try restarting your device and try using the card again. If the problem persists, go to Settings> Applications> Play Store> Force Stop> Uninstall updates. The Play Store will then return to its original version and the problem should be gone.

Google Play - Error rpc:aec:0]

Problem

You can't download an app.

Solution

Remove your Google account. Remove all synced accounts. Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select Clear data. Restart your device and try again.

Google Play - Error RPC:S-3

Problem

Can't download an app.

Solution

Remove Google account and re-add it, or try an alternate account.

Google Play – Error authentication required

Problem

Strangely, this problem is quite common on Android devices. But rest assured, we have three possible solutions to deal with it. One of these tips should hopefully resolve your problem.

Solutions

1. Enter the Accounts tab in the settings of your phone. Then remove your Google account and add it again. If everything works fine after, then it was a simple error that's sometimes displayed after an update.

2. Go into your Settings, tap Application manager then go into the Google Play Store. Delete the data from this menu (you can also clear the cache).

3. Maybe the problem is not really in your authentication, but the Play Store itself. In this case, you only have to go to application settings (Settings> Applications), search the Play Store and click Uninstall updates. You might need to disable the Play Store to get this started. That way you get the initial Play Store version that you had when you first purchased the phone. After that, you just have to update it and then re-register.

Google Play - Package File Invalid

Problem

Play Store error.

First solution

Go to Settings > Apps > All and select the app that's causing the problem, then select Clear cache and Clear data. Try again in Google Play Store.

Second solution

Install app through Google Play Store website.

Third solution

Disable Wi-Fi and download or update the app using mobile network data.

Fourth solution

Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and select Clear cache and Clear data. Do the same for Google Services Framework.

Fifth solution

Remove your Google account, restart your device, re-add your Google account and try again.

Google Play – Error 8

Problem

This error occurs when you want to download an application and the download stops.

Solution

Make sure you have Google Play Services installed. If the problem persists, go to the application list and enter Google Play Services and disable the application. It will then ask if you want to restore the factory settings and you just have to confirm. If this does not solve the problem, you should contact Google support.

Google Play – Error 18

Problem

Error 18 has been around since late 2015 and happens when you want to reinstall an application that you already had in the past. There is no quick fix to this problem, but some tricks can help.

Solution

After going on several forums, it seems that some users were able to resolve error 18 by disconnecting and reconnecting the SD or microSD memory card. However, it does not appear that it's working for all users. If the problem persists, you can try to contact Google's online support. The final and drastic solution is a factory reset.

Google Play – Error 20

Problem

This problem occurs when installing or updating an Android app.

Solution

To resolve this error, you must have a rooted device, since you will need to access a file named 'smd2tmp1' found in / mnt / secure / asec /. If your phone is rooted, you can delete this folder, which should permanently resolve the problem.

If you don't want to root your device, there is another solution. Delete the file / data / data of the application that's causing you problems. Use file explorer to access the folder. To do this, I suggest you check out our best file managers for Android article.

Google Play - Error -24

Problem

Unknown.

Solution

You need a root manager to solve this one. If you have one, navigate to Data/data. In that folder, locate the package name of the app causing trouble (this can be found by looking at the URL of the app on the Play Store website). Delete the entire folder. Try reinstalling the app.

Google Play - Error 101

Problem

Can't download app as there are too many currently installed.

Solution

Uninstall old and unused apps.

Google Play – Error 103

Problem

This is a mysterious problem, which occurs when Google Play thinks an application is compatible with a device, but it actually isn't. It can then cause the 103 error to occur and recur on all your other devices, including those that are compatible.

Solution

Generally, there isn't anything you need to do on your side, since this error will solve itself after a few hours. The cause of the problem? An application signature concern. If you have developer knowledge, you can try to resolve it by signing the application again with the JDK tool 1.6+ release. If the error persists more than 48 hours, contact Google Support.

Google Play - Error 100

Problem

When you try to install or update an app from the Play Store, it sends an error message stating, "App can’t be installed due to an Error 100 – No Connection."

Solution

  1. First, navigate to Settings>Date and Time. Check if date and time is correct. If not, then turn off the Automatic Date and Time feature and set the correct date and time. Also, check if you have set the correct Time Zone too. If not, switch to Manual Mode and look for the time zone of your region. Restart your device. If this doesn't work, proceed to next step.
  2. Head to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache. If the problem persists, try downloading the app from the Play Store website.
  3. Delete your Google Play Store data in Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear data. Delete data from Google Services Framework as well (note: this will assign a new Google ID to your device, as if you had factory reset it, meaning your Google apps may temporarily act up afterward).
  4. Delete your Google account on the device, reboot your phone and re-add your Google account in Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Google Account.

Google Play - Error 110

Problem

The application cannot be installed.

Solution

Head to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache. If the problem persists, try downloading the app from the Play Store website.

Google Play - Error 194

Problem

This error happens when you try to download games or apps from the Google Play Store.

Solution

One fix for this issue is to clear the cache data for Google Play Services and the Google Play Store. 

  1. Go to Settings > Apps or Application Manager
  2. Scroll across to All and then down to the Google Play Store app.
  3. Open the app details and tap the Force stop button.
  4. Next tap on the Clear data button.

Now repeat the process above, but replace Google Play Store with Google Play Services at step two and then attempt your download again.  

If that doesn't work, don't worry - the issue has now been resolved and a fix is being rolled out in the next version of the Play Store app. Just make sure you have the latest Google Play Store APK and you shouldn't experience this error again.

Google Play Error - 403

Problem

The download is impossible and the request is 'forbidden'. This usually happens when two Google accounts are used to buy applications on one device.

First solution

Go the Google Play Store with the correct Google account. Uninstall the application in question. Try to get the app from Google Play again and tap the purchase button.

Second solution

Clear the proxy you have possibly set up, by going into the Settings, then choose Wireless and Networks (or More networks) and then Mobile Network. Select APN, which stands for Access Point Name and hit Clear Proxy Option. You can always reinstate the proxy afterwards.

Go to Settings > More networks > Mobile networks > APN, and hit the Clear proxy option. / © AndroidPIT

Third solution

Another solution would be to erase your entire search history, which you can do in the Play Store itself by choosing the Settings button. Next, select Clear search history.

Fourth solution

Try creating a new Google account and using it for the Play Store instead. Go to the Google Play, and select the menu button again. Then select Accounts and choose the New Gmail account. Then reinstall the app.

Google Play Error - 406

Problem

Apps cannot be downloaded. This particular error can occur if you've reset the Google account you used to register on your phone, if you've restored your device to its factory settings, or if you've registered a new account on your phone.

Solution

A classic clearing of the cache will hopefully do the trick. Go to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache.

Otherwise, try again on a different network connection.

Google Play - 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.

In Settings, find Apps (or Application manager), 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.

Google Play - Error 481

Problem

Google Play - Error 492

Problem

It’s impossible to install an application because of 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.

Google Play - Error 495

Problem

Problem downloading or updating apps from Play Store.

Solution

Delete your Google Play Store data in Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear data. Delete data from Google Services Framework as well (note: this will assign a new Google ID to your device, as if you had factory reset it, meaning your Google apps may temporarily act up afterward).

Delete your Google account on the device, reboot your phone and re-add your Google account in Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Google Account.

Google Play Store - Error 497

Problem

Difficulty updating installed apps

First solution

Second solution

Disable your SD card, if you have one. Go to Settings > Storage > Unmount SD card.

Third solution

If your phone is rooted, you can delete the app's APK and reinstall it. To do so, open up Root Explorer, or a similar application, and navigate to System / app > Mount R / W > Delete application. Or you can play it safe and rename the offending APK to to something like GoogleSearch.apk.backup, so you can revert it if anything goes wrong.

Google Play - 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.

Google Play – Error 501

Problem

If you can't open the Google Play Store or perform downloads, then surely you have the 501 error.

Solution

To fix it, you must go to the Settings, then open these two applications: Google Play Services and Play Store – then you have to tap Clear Cache. Once you have done this, go into Accounts and delete your Google Account. Then restart your phone, input and synchronize your Google account again, then let your phone sit for five minutes without touching it. After these five minutes are over, the 501 error should not bother you anymore.

Google Play - Error 504

Problem

App could not be downloaded due to an error.

First solution

The usual, please: go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and Clear cache and Clear data. Also Clear cache and Clear data for Google Services Framework.

Two or more apps with duplicate permissions

You need to find out what app has the same permissions as the one you're trying to install and uninstall the problem app. To do this, find the APK file for the app you are trying to install and attempt to restore the app using a Lucky Patcher backup. The tool should present a window alerting you to which app is producing the conflict. This is the app you need to uninstall.

Google Play – Error 906

Problem

This problem mainly occurs on the HTC One M8 and M9. This often occurs when downloading or updating an app. Errors 907 and 963 are similar and resolved in the same way.

Solution

With problems downloading and installing the application, you must clear the cache and data of the Play Store app. If that does not work, uninstall the updates. If it still does not work, turn off your SD card by going to Settings> Memory / Storage). Return to the Play Store and try to install the app. If the problem persists, you probably have your app on an external card to transfer it to the internal memory. Then you can send it to the SD card once the application is installed.

Google Play – Error 907

This problem is identical to Error 906.

Google Play - Error 911

  • Good information..Thank you for sharing


  • I'm not sure if I'm in the right place? Quite often I'll be on my Android doing whatever and a box will pop up saying "Amazon App has stopped. Please close". I'm not even using that app! I know my ex hacked my phone and has access to ALL my accounts! Could this have something to do with it?


  • Zzz 3 months ago Link to comment

    ERROR 190
    rror 190 certainly related to storage permission.(i think)

    1.a. For newer androids version check that in settings,grant it if not.

    1.b. For older rooted versions """move play store and play services to system apps"""

    After following 1.a or/and 1.b

    2. Clear cache and data of

    Play store
    Play services
    Services framework
    Download manager
    Package installer

    3. Remove your google account from settings

    4. Reboot

    5. Add account again( also try syncing)

    6. Check play store and play services are latest version/updated.

    7. If not,update them by downloading respective apks.
    ("MMUUSSTT" be compatible with your device...i.e. Correct dpi or ppi/chip architecture etc to know more about this try to find FAQ on respective website)

    8. Again follow steps after every change you make...2, 3, 4


  • All but my error code is included here, ERROR 100 and it's annoying. Not sure what is causing it or what to do to get it stopped. If anyone knows please share! I've already cleared the Play Store cache and deleted data, now what? Please don't say factory reset... I don't have time for that right now.


  • Brilliant article loie, this is extremely helpful and informative. A lot of time and attention has gone into writing this article therefore I wanted to appreciate this, thank you.

  • REFRAIN FROM GOOGLE ENTIRELY! GOOGLE IS KNOWN TO COLLECT EVERY OUNCE OF DATA! Google is the BIGGEST privacy nightmare.


  • if I already saw what I needed that good thanks
    playstoreappdownload.mobi


  • What about error code: 971? I was updating a big app when this error occurred while the updating was about to complete.


  • Could someone help? Whenever I try to download Instagram, it would say "Instagram" cannot be downloaded. "Error -24"


  • Followed the steps for a 504 error and now I'm getting the RH-01 error. Followed those steps and it still didn't work. I even rebooted the phone and switched between WiFi and Mobile Data networks but I still get the RH-01 I swear Google is becoming more like Microsoft everyday. Once I finally got past the RH-01 error the 504 still persists with the same Google Inc application refusing to install. These steps didn't fix anything. Looks like I'm just going to have to factory reset my phone :(


    • I found another solution which may be unique to my situation but may help others as well. The whole issue started when the Google Quick Search Bar stopped working. I would tap the widget and it would load an overlay image of my homescreen but wouldn't let me search by typing or talking. I often use it to set reminders for myself. So I tried fixing the app with the obvious options of clearing cache, data, and force closing the app. That didn't work so I rebooted the phone. Still no go. So I chose to uninstall updates. This led to the phone acting like the app wasn't installed at all. The widget disappeared and couldn't be re-added and under Google Play Store it showed "Install" instead of "Open" for the Google app.

      Solution: What I finally figured out was that elements of the app were still installed which leads me to believe this was more like a 505 duplicate permissions error even though it showed error 504. Anyway, I used Root Explorer to search the /data/ directory for any instances of "quicksearchbar" I then deleted all the items that came up in the search. After that the Google app installed just fine and I have the search bar widget back again! :)


  • My problem is not listed there.
    I am not getting either error code: simply after the last update og Google Play (an automatic process, I cannot control this) download phase of each update of my apps is going as usual.
    But after the download Google Play "goes to a forest for mushrooms", - it can took up to 10-15 minutes it begins to install update dowloaded.
    As I checked, download is really complete - this is not something like 100% forewer-waiting like on Windows.
    But the it is searching (?) for a something or waiting some approval for check-sum or response from either process.

    What can be an error?

    The device is LG G5 with Android 7.0, last update possible.

  • Hello, my problem is, whenever I try to download some app, it shows, "download pending" my cellphone is Mi Redmi2. Same thing is happening with updates, if I update an app, it showing , Download pending, For a single app?? Please help me with this.


  • Hopefully the author sees this and adds it to the list, since this is the top google result. There is also a -504, which this article actually seems to be addressing instead of the actual 504. Google guy i contacted yesterday basically took those steps, but admitted they have yet to actually work for him. I didn't tell him at the time, but i have a rooted tablet, and what i saw is that sometimes when an app installs and/or uninstalls, some junk files get left in a directory blocked off to regular users, making it impossible to manually delete without root. However, leaving those files there will make the installers choke, since they don't default to overwriting a file/folder that already exists. I found it, since it was a bunch of square-enix apps as well as pokemon go, so i knew that there should not have been a single pokemon related file on my device, so, in termux, i used *du / | grep "pokemon" > pokesearch.log* after gaining root access, and i got a few results, but they were all contained in the final result, which was "1220 /mnt/expand/07aa2c40-4a8f-428c-afb9-7495df69eb26/user/0/com.nianticlabs.pokemongo" where i could just use *rm -R /mnt/expand/07aa2c40-4a8f-428c-afb9-7495df69eb26/user/0/com.nianticlabs.pokemongo* to delete it, after which installing the app would work again. I replied to the email the google tech sent me with this information, and i assume he forwarded it to the devs. Until then, rooted users should be able to enjoy the solution.
