Did this with Root Explorer, just want to mention, permission 771 should be granted not only for cache folder, but to every sub-folder.

Anyway thanx, this is really working solution.

Just a quick note: Noticed this error after installing the Xposed Module "Root Cloak". Since this error only showed up for root apps I figured that was the problem. Was able to update (TiBU and Greenify) by disabling Root Cloak - rebooting - updating - re-enabling Root Cloak.

Not sure what item I added to Root Cloak that is causing this issue, but for now this "solved" the problem for me.

Dead or not I have ran into the exact same thing twice. First time was right after root cloak, and this time its been a while. That and a bad memory had me end up here. Root Cloak or not a simple fix permissions in something as old as ROM Manager or just do it in custom recovery fixed it for me. Android 4.3. Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 rooted stock with multi user. I note multi user because it has also caused me some grief due to knox magically appearing in the second user even though completely removed from ROM and also must enable multi user root in supersu. Thanks for making me chase permissions instead of go after the old sd card mount issues.

Red face Solution to "Invalid download URI."
After some time of troubleshooting this issue, and performing all the previously recommended steps, we believe we found a really easy solution. In fact, I feel really frustrated that I didn't do this to begin with, but hey, live and learn.

This solution will typically work for folks who are getting this on almost every app, with a few exceptions. You may notice that some apps will install while others throw this "Invalid download URI." When an app is downloaded, the installer will then look to see where the app wants to install. Most of the time, these apps request to use the "SD Card" mount point. On most Android devices, even if you do not have a SD card installed, you will still have a SD Card mount point, which simply points to another location within the phones storage. It turns out that in this case, the S4 we were working on, had a SD card installed, but it was defective. So the installer would attempt to perform the installation step, but since the SD card wasn't responding appropriately, we would get this "Invalid download URI" error. After the card was removed, the Play store began functioning normally and apps would install without any issues.

Hopefully this helps everyone who had no success with the cache clearing and permission change solutions.
