Default Play store insufficient storage

Hey I've searched all over Google etc, but last night I tries to download a 2mb app but it said insufficient storage, but yet it let's me download a 80mb game.

I just don't understand what it is I can install several but there are a select few that says there is not enough memory.

Does anyone have a fix for this I've tried all sorts, I've uninstalled many apps but it still says the same thing for most apps I'm trying to install.

I managed to solve the problem. If anyone else has tbis problem Dow load Android Terminal Emulator

Type 'su' and grant then
Type pm set-install-location 0,
Which changes the default location
