Android - Error 498



"Unable to download update xxx - Error 498".
The error code 498 appears when you no longer have sufficient memory to install the update or app. This may include the smartphone's internal memory, SD card or cache (temporary). It should be noted that the system keeps an operating margin out of the total space available. You can regain some free storage space by cleaning temporary files and the various application caches.
  • Go to Settings > Applications > All
  • Select the "Google Play Store", clear the cache and data.
  • Then go to "Download Manager", clear the cache and data.
  • Restart your phone and try downloading/uploading the apps again.
