      Go to a browser and search “hide man vpn.apk. Download the app. Click on it in your notification screen or use your file management app to find it in your download folder….. Install it after checking the” unknown sources” box under Settings>Security>Unknown Sources

    I was struggling with this for a good hour – cleared the cache for Google play, download manager, framework – no joy. I then noticed a lot of the issues are due to locations (hence the VPN fix) so I went to the ‘google settings app’ and access location was unticked. Checked it and now everything downloads fine.

    Tenía el mismo problema lo solucioné, activando el WiFi, Google hace la actualización utilizando no la red de datos sino el WiFi. Y me funciono para las actualizaciones e instalaciones nuevas.

    He had the same problem I solved it, activating the WiFi, Google makes the upgrade not using the net of data but the WiFi. And I work me for the upgrades and new facilities.

    Oi pessoal bom dia meu nome é Daiane e tb tive esse problema, consegui resolver verificando as opções: configurações > redes > uso de dados > restringir dados em 2º plano. Para conseguir baixar algo no Google Play essa opção deve estar DESABILITADA para todos os
    APP’s do celular. Após baixar o que tem interesse MARQUE esta opção p/ economizar bateria e assim você vai conseguiu usar a internet normalmente para navegar mais não vai conseguir baixar APP’s….abraço.

    Google Translate from Portuguese to English from above
    Hi, good day my name is Daiane and tb had this problem, I could solve checking options: settings> networks> data usage> restrict data in 2nd level. To get download something on Google Play this option should be disabled for all
    APP’s cell. After downloading the interest that has this option MARK w / battery save and so you will able to use the internet to browse more typically will be unable to download APP’s …. hug.
