Whenever i turn my SG S4 (GT-I9505) on or restart it, i get a 'currently unable to download. Please try again later' message at the bottom of my screen. All of my apps are up to date, recently downloaded 4.4.2 and play store 4.6.17. I haven't allowed third party apps but have turned off some permissions for some apps via app ops starter. Is it just a bug with the new firmware or what?

Hello and welcome to Android Forums jigoku0128! :)

There are a couple of things that you can try from the Update Problems - Dummies Guide...

1. As per #1.2, you can clear your cache partition.

2. Clear the Play Store cache as per Step #1 of #1.3. You may even need to clear data as per Step #2.

See if that helps.

Hi Jigoku0128

Ive had this issue for awhile (ever since l updated my phone software) and it annoying to the max I tell you, the other day frittered with my phone LG G3 and lve noticed that the "unable to download..." had something to do with the message app on my phone... So I went into my message settings and l changed my default message settings from "messages" to "hangout" app which was my other option and Kaboooooommmmm!!! It magically disapeared and l havent seen it since... I dont mind using hangouts as my default for messaging. I REALLY HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.
