Which version did u update from and what to?
More than likely, you will need a different version of google apps. To do this you will have to flash from the cwm recovery once you hasve the right gaps. Also i would highly recomend a factory restore in settings afterword. I always factory restore after an update if going from one vrrsion to annother and not a fresh install

Did you try reinstalling the play store -> http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/12...tors-and-more/

Download .apk and install from cm file manager in the apps list. You'll need to enable settings -> security -> unknown sources before installing.

Perhaps it will work after that.

Or you can reboot into recovery and flash the gapps again. Flash gapps for the version of cm you use.

Otherwise, you should make full backups in the recovery before installing an update so you can roll right back.

Or you can wipe and do a clean install.

I've never tried installing an older update but if you want to see if that works or crashes and burns then there's an option too. That won't bring back play store though
