Yesterday, I stumbled upon a new error on my Android device, while I was trying to update my few apps like whaptsapp, snapchat, instagram and facebook. The error code message was “App can’t be updated. Try Again, and if the problem continues, get help troubleshooting. (Error code: 924)”. I was not surprised by this, as I have got a plenty of them in the past, and have searched and found successful solutions for them. Most of the errors that we usually face or commit are inevitable no matter how hard we try to prevent them. The errors have just become a part of our life so you should never be disappointed whenever you face any kind of error, just try to be calm and maintain patience because only after this you will be able to resolve your issue. So first try to get hold of the current situation and look out for possible solutions and don’t lose your confidence until you resolve your error permanently.
For this one too, the process was all the same. I did a little research about the error code 924, which included the reasons and meaning of its occurrence with the methods to solve it. So, in this article, we are going to discuss about the ways to solve the google play error 924 in android, and in case you are troubled by it, then this post is going to be pretty useful for it. Unlike some other errors which were too hard to solve, this one is not. If you know why this occured, then you can solve it easily.
Here’s why Error 924 occurs:
In my case, I found out that my WiFi had been turned off, and since I didn’t have any network connection, the Google Play Store could not download any updates from the server and hence, it showed the “App can’t be updated. Try Again, and if the problem continues, get help troubleshooting. (Error code: 924) message.”
Apart from that, there might be some other reasons too, such as problem in cache or data in your Google Play Store. Keeping in mind the reasons, here are some solution to fix this error.
Methods to help troubleshoot and solve error 924.
Make sure that you are connected to the internet (WiFi, as you would not want to update your apps using your cellular data), and that is fast enough for all your apps to be downloaded at a good speed. In case your internet speed is too slow, even if you are connected to the internet, you might get this error.
You should try this one even if checking your connection properly solves your error 924, as it avoids a lot of other recurring on errors on Android. follow these steps:
- Go to Menu >> Settings >> Applications on the device >> All selected applications.
- Select the Google Play Store app, and then tap Clear data and Clear cache.
- Select Download Manager and tap Clear data and Clear cache.
If none of the above mentioned methods solve this error, the only way to get round this is to factory reset your device, let your device reboot and take it from there. Unfortunately you will lose all of your data, however if you backup your apps to sd card or cloud, this will be helpful in the time saved looking around the playstore later. PS, if you have rooted your device this will let you backup data as well.
