    I have PlayStore 3.5.15 which has popup stating there is update to "Free App Reminder for Amazon." When I try to update the app manually, I get the message
    "Error: Update for 'Free App Reminder for Amazon' could not be downloaded due to an error. (403)"
    I used TB to 'wipe data' from PlayStore and the app itself, but I still get the error message if I try to update. (Free App Reminder is Version 3)

    MikG 3.11
    Anthrax v009

    Any thoughts about this?? Thanx in advance for your help and guidance.

    reboot into recovery wipe cache and dalvic probably should wipe data from settings instead of TB

    I went into recovery and wiped cache and dalvik twice. I then went to applications in settings and did 'clear data' in both Google Play Store and Free App Reminder for Amazon.

    I then tried to manually download the update for the app, and I received the same error message.

    Still a problem....

    In addition to the above, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Same error problem when I went to reinstall.

    I removed it and installed a different 'notifier app'.

    I was going to suggest to unistall and then wipe cache and dalvic then reinstall but it sounds like you figured out a way :D

    Unfortunately nothing worked, soooo I removed the problemsome app and chose another application to [hopefully] do the same thing.

    Hi Guys,

    I found this and this worked for me.

    I had this issue and i fix it like this if you are using ICS:
    1- go to the android market.
    2- press the menu button.
    3- choose accounts.
    4- choose which account you want to use it with the market.

    then it will work fine for all apps

    Did you change LCD density? Sometimes that will give you this problem. It should be set at 240.

    I'm using 2.3.7 and once I reselected my account in Google play, I was able to update apps.

    I've been having the same issue for certain apps over the last few days. I tried clearing market data but that didnt work, I'll try the account fix.

    Its strange though, I have no problems PURCHASING apps, but when I try to download the free version it gives errors.

    I smell a conspiracy :p

    This does not work for me. My issue just started today. It was working fine yesterday and earlier today. I don't know what the problem could be. Even the website version won't download any games.

    My error: "Oops, we had trouble processing your request. We're working on fixing the issue. Please try again later."

    I was running miui and had these issues. I had to restore the ply store from a sense based rom to get it working

    I'm always on Sense and mine just started today. I don't understand it either. I wiped data in the play store, wiped cache, wiped dalvik-cache, restarted my phone nothing is working.

    Is this an inherent problem with the "new and improved" Google Market. Did it get infected with one (or more) virus(es)??? The fact that the problem is fairly widespread makes it sound like it could be a problem inherent within Play Store. What do the Google engineers say about the etiology as well as corrective action to be taken. The should be interested in leading .....

    I highly doubt its a virus. More likely server problems on their end or just a small bug in the app

    Do you have it backed up on titanium backup?

    If not, I can send you the free version of SetCPU untill google gets their stuff figured out.

    I had it backed up but due to my issues, which are resolved now, I wiped all my backups. That would be great if you could link me that version.:) Thanks!

    Better late than never.... Sorry!

    It's not updated to the newest UI, but it still works. Only difference is it will ask you if you want to buy the real version the first time.

    Hope the market gets figured out soon so you can get the normal version back on there!

    It's not our phones at all. It is the Google Play Store. My friend and I were trying to download a game from there a few seconds ago. He's on Verizon and he was getting a connection error also. I'm almost 100% sure it's nothing to do with our phones, lol.
