I read there was an update to G maps and tried to get it in my nexus. However the strangest thing happened.
Maps does not show up on my list of available apps. However, with a manual search in the play store I can find it and shows up as update (so the store recognizes I have it installed) and when I hit the update button I get an error message, something about the app being ready in a few minutes.
Any ideas why is this happening? Even better how to fix it?
Another thing you could try is clearing data of the play store in the application setting not sure if that will work but worth a try. I didn't have any problems updating my maps but I'm running a custom rom which may be the reason why.
