Have you ever come across an error stating that there is insufficient storage available on your Android device such as a Samsung Galaxy smartphone when you try to update your stock apps (pre-installed Google apps such as Google Maps or Chrome Browser) from Google Play Store even though there is free space of over 500 MB in Internal Storage? Fear not because I certainly have and there is a solution for this.
First, try resolving the issue using the steps given in this link : Resolve app installation errors in Google Play Store
If the problem persists, perform the following procedure:
- Tap on Google Play Store
- On the Menu (on top-left corner), tap on “My Apps”.
- Tap on the Google app (eg. Google Maps) that does not get updated due to the insufficient storage error.
- Tap on Uninstall. A pop-up message will get displayed for confirmation. Tap on “OK”.
- Once the app has been uninstalled, tap on “Install”.
After following the steps mentioned above, you should see that the latest version of the pre-installed app getting installed without error message getting popped up.
Hope this helps.
