Happened to me after flashing a ROM. I blew out the ROM, reflashed and reset my Google ID. That fixed it.

This fix worked for me...find it on another xda forum.
Log into your Play account online with a web browser, go to your devices and give them nicknames. Anything will do. Somehow that magically fixed my download and update woes.
