    Some new app was selected, downloaded, installing forever. Cancelled it.
    Then in the update list the top app downloaded - installed forevver.
    I Uninstalled the app.
    Back to google Play: The next app update - installing forever. Other downloads are all pending.
    I uninstalled several seemingly offending apps, this did not help. The same behavior repeated, just the next app in the updat list got stuck.

    I finally discovered a hint: Settings - Apps - Google Play: Open it, clear cache.
    While there I cleared all caches whose names began with GOOGLE.

    It helped. Please benefit if you have the same problem.

    Sorry, the bad behavior came back. No app will update while the first one (or any one in the list) is installing forever.. Emptying the cache again did not help.

    Try this link from your phone, and open in Google Play:


    If there's an update, update it. Reboot and try updating apps again.

    I contacted the link you specified.

    The INSTALLED field appeared. I clicked it, nothing happened first time. Clicked again, this time the screen changed a few seconds, then the INSTALLED screen come back,
    This activity did not cure the problem. All apps which need updates display PENDING. If the actual app is clicked download the software begins -showing th Megabytes, Then shows INSTALLING and remains like this for 10 hours or more on the same process / app. Some hours more NOTIFICATION displays UNABLE TO UPDATE.
    Stressing the point: DOWNLOAD works. INSTALLING then goes on forever, blocking any related operation; UPDATE, NEW INSTALLATION etc. .Independent which app is used to check.
    Does Google have a good help site on this?

    Android 5.0, MLAIS 4 Note.
