Insufficient Storage to Update apps

Re: Insufficient Storage to Update apps

I'm glad someone has found a solution. I recently had to upgrade WhatsApp. It wouldn't install so I uninstalled the old version and cleared the cache and since then I haven't been unable to reinstall it from Google Play Store - always get insufficient memory message. I have:

Downloaded App Cache Cleaner and utilised that

Done a Factory Reset

Got rid of lots of apps - but sometimes I have even less memory available after I've uninstalled an app

Moved everything I can to SD card

Turned phone off and on

 

Today the Apps are shown  as using 326MB used and 94MB free. None of the suggestions on this forum have worked for me and I would appreciate any other help, thanks.

Re: Insufficient Storage to Update apps

Just face facts, the Arc & Arc S are just out of there depth in 2014 due to there limiting hardware.

 

I've got my Arc S rooted, i've erased a lot of app's of the device, i've moved all the other app's possible to the SD card, i've cleaned the cache & i've still only got 73Mb free memory.

 

Im waiting on the Nokia Lumia 930 to be launched next week, i've had enough of Sony mobile, Google & Android.

Re: Insufficient Storage to Update apps

Why does my Android system takes so much space on my internal memory?

Re: Insufficient Storage to Update apps

superb. Thanks a lot for this reply. This resolved the issue. I have Sony Xperia - p series model mobile phone. i went to settings->apps->All. chose each app and clicked on 'Move to internal storage' .This transferred the data from the device to internal storage (SD card).  Then when i installed new apps, it was sucessfully installed. The error message of ' insuffucient storage' was gone.

Thank you.
