CM 10.2.1-ovation
Android 4.3.1
Date and time: Use network time
Kernel: 3.031-green+

After installing the latest CM "stable" update using the built in CM upgrade system, the google play store no longer works. I get "No connection retry" when loading play store. Prior to 10.2.1 play store functioned normally.

I googled this, and found none of the solutions worked. I've tried:

1. Ensuring network time is set
2. clearing data cache from play store app
3. Uninstalling and reinstalling play store from an apk

Wondering if this is a known issue with a known fix from someone in the community.

Thanks

If you were previously using CM 10.1.3 (Android 4.2.2) and have now upgraded to CM 10.2 (Android 4.3), you need to reinstall GAPPS for your new Android version.

So you'll need to download the latest GAPPS, found here: http://goo.im/gapps (for CM10.2.x) and then boot into CWM Recovery and install GAPPS manually. The automatic CM updater does not install GAPPS unfortunately.

Once you've done that, reboot back into Android and you're good to go. All the best.

Thanks! I did a factory reset and installed gapps. Everything works again. I guess when upgrading android versions using the CM updater, gapps will always have to be reinstalled? This is by design? Weirdly, no other gapps had any issues after the upgrade. Gmail, youtube, etc all worked fine, just not the play store.

You only need to update gapps when you do a major update like you did from CM10.1 to CM10.2. But you now have CM10.2 stable so there will be no more updates to it.
