    Lately play store hasn't been letting me download anything. It doesn't come up with any messages saying there is an error but you know when you click to download something there is a moving blue line under the name showing the progress or something, that appears and just moves for ages and doesn't download anything. I left one app for 2 hours and the line just kept moving and nothing downloaded.

    Also the notification bar at the top of tablet it usually comes up there doesn't it? Nothing comes up when I try to download something. My internet connection is fine. I've also signed in and out of Google and even made a new account and still not working! Any ideas? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums! You may want to clear the Play Store's cache.

    Go to Settings-->Apps-->All
    Select Play Store
    Click Clear Cache

    If that doesn't do it click Clear Data

    That may just get you going again.

    I tried clearing the cache and it didn't work. Then I went into 'clear data' and a scary message came up. Being of a technically inept and nervous disposition I left that alone. Next I tried'force stop' and restarted the app as normal. It started downloading my stuff immediately. Half of what I wanted downloaded and then I had to repeat the clear cache and force stop. Everything is now working fine.
    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to Android Central! Tap your System Settings icon. This can be found in various places--in the App Drawer (listed as Settings), in the swipe-down notification shade or quick settings shade, or sometimes when you press the hard menu key, if you have one (like the Droid Razr line). The Settings icon usually looks like a gear or a panel of slider switches.

    After getting to the main Settings menu, then tap the Apps menu, and then swipe over until you see the "All" list.

    So, same problem as above. Cleared system cache and Playstore app cache and data.
    Lollipop on a 16gb nexus 7 2012. This is the error.
    This happens to be for Chrome, but it happens with all apps.

    Welcome to Android Central! When you say that the same goes for you, are you getting the exact same error message that says you don't have enough space? If so, please show us a screenshot of your Settings>Storage menu, as was suggested to the previous poster.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try going to Settings>Apps>All, select Google Play Store, and Force Stop, then Clear Cache/Clear Data. Do the same for Download Manager.

    If that doesn't work, then go to Google Wallet on the web and make sure that you have a valid credit card linked to it.

    I also cannot download anything. I've tried deleted data/cache, and force stop, and nothing.
    There is an update pending that keeps popping up, something to do with the download manager, but since I can't download anything, I can't download it.
    Help!!
