I've had my G2 for a few months now, no problems. Earlier today i noticed that it wont update my apps or i cant download new ones. its just constantly stuck in the starting download stage, never actually starts downloading.

I've tried:
force closing the play store app
clearing the cache and data from the app
signing out of hangouts then back in (read that might help)
restarting phone, and powering off then back on


I am out of ideas. anyone have any suggestions?

I am having tg the same problem. Started earlier today. My guess is it's a problem with the market. Hopefully fixed soon.

I have had this issue in the past and found updating the kernel from the custom rom's stock kernel to another kernel(furnace, paek, etc.) has worked for me.

I'm just on the stock LG rom, I've rooted, but that's all I've done. So not sure how to update the kernel.

Get a custom recovery like can or twrp, then look for a kernel compatible with your device
