    Go to system settings - applications. Clear the cache for the top apps using the most. Try downloading again and see if that helps. It'll be a temporary fix, so consider deleting any unused apps.

    Welcome to Android Central! 145 MB isn't much, so that's why you're getting the errors. The system has a certain threshold of storage memory below which it won't let you install anything. And remember that an app's filesize reported in Google Play doesn't represent the storage that it takes up when fully installed--like Windows programs, the full app is usually significantly larger than the installer's filesize. The external SD card doesn't help you, because apps have to be downloaded and installed into Internal Storage first before possibly being able to move to SD (and it's usually just a portion of the app that can be moved, if at all).
