    I have had this problem myself. I think I read somewhere that the play store is borked and Google is sending out a fix soon. Not sure where I saw that though. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    You could try going into settings>apps>Google Play Store and clearing cache and data, reboot phone and try again.

    Unfortunately I think we're stuck waiting for Google to fix this.

    EDIT: Ha! I got ninja'd by SolApathy!
