Delete your Google account from accounts & sync.
Reboot to recovery, wipe Cache +dalvik.
Reboot.
Add your Google account.
Do this, and it should be fine.

Thank you kgs1992. Worked like a charm on my vzw GSIII after I restored from Titanium Backup and got the 491 error. Found your answer thru a google search. Thanks again.

So is this essentially the same as a 403 and 927 then? Or just same remedy...

It's the only solution to most play store errors.
This should solve it, unless you've modified something or you're using a modified version of play store.

Just recently I came across this error more frequently. This only happend to on 4.1.2. Either on Stock Rom or Custom. Happend on my Note 2,the Note 10.1 and on my gf's SGS-2. Until then, having different phones over the years, different Android Versions, I never saw this error. Since its multiple Phlnes, Tablets and Roms over the years, there is no common connection what this could be. Except the Playstore and Android 4.1.2.

Any thoughts on that?

It could be some versions of Google Play services I think.
Changing your lcd density is one major cause.
Sometimes changing Roms without wiping triggers it too.
Hard to point out a single culprit when there are so many possible triggers for play store errors.

I always wipe for different Roms. But out of curiosity, what has changing LCD density to do with that error? Really strikes me odd that something like that could have anything to do with such an error.

However, it seems likely that Google screwed something up with theit Market Services, at least with 4.1.2. Didnt notice that error in other Android Versions.

I'm not sure myself.
Changing density makes some apps unavailable to you on most versions of play store, but on some versions, the app is still available, but downloading it causes an error.
