Default Play store 403 error on new Moto X

I just got a Moto X on Android 4.2.2 from Amazon in Germany. As it is a present for my wife I wanted to install everything for her so she can use it out of the box...

As soon as I logged in to her Google account I got some messages about updates for apps. So I tried to update them, but every app gives me the "couldn't download (403) error". Even if I try installing new apps it gives me the same error.

Now I've searched and tried some different things:

- switch from WiFi to 3G
- try different WiFi network
- clear cache on Play Store app
- clear cache on Play service
- clear cache on Download manager
- removing and re-adding the Google account
- doing a factory reset

Nothing works. I am now just on the verge of packing everything and sending it back to Amazon. After all the rave reviews I was expecting a great device, but I never had any problems with Android phones before and I've had my fair share of Android phones over the past 5 years or so.

Anybody got any idea how to fix this?

Remove proxy in apn settings. Write it down tho...in case you need to put it back.

Reboot after. Make sure proxy is still gone.

Then clear playstore cache, play services and Google framework caches.

Reboot. Try play store.

I had the same problem after updating to 4.4.2.

I force closed and cleared play store cache and the same for google service framework + a reboot and it worked.
