Fixed For Those Who Didn't Got
Hey, Guys I also tried Thousands of ways to repair this error and I found it

Many ways are there...
1. Disable media storage and download manager and clear data
2. Fix Permissions
3. Reset Android
4. Install any other custom rom
5. Best way I found is to switch Primary Storage to Phone Storage not to SD Card

Please Hit Thanks If it works.....

How do you do this with stock non root LP?
Can't disable media storage or download manager on my LG G3 and it goes back to having the same problem again after rebooting

This problem just started this week. Only recent app I've installed is yahoo mail

Thanks this solve the issue after updating to marshmallow on my v10. For me, Media Storage could not be disabled, but didn't appear to cause an issue.

It's not working for me. What should I do? I am using Lenovo A7000 phone with AOSP 5.0 custom ROM. The only way I guess is a factory reset, but I dont wanna do that. Please help
