The error that Google Play keeps giving me on the latest update is “error 497”. If you have this issue, you may have downloaded the wrong version of Google Play. Try downloading the update again.
Google Play may not have sent you the right update. If the update has already been downloaded and you don’t see the error, try downloading the correct one, and if still no go with the update, download it again.
This may be a common issue that you may experience, so make sure to download the update from the latest available source.
If you are at all interested in a specific update, and so you do not have the latest version, you can try following instructions on the Google Play page.
Error 497 is Google’s way of saying that you have an error in your developer account. If the update does not download correctly or you have downloaded the most recent update, you can try downloading and installing the correct update from the developer site.
I was able to fix it in a bit but it was a few minutes of me typing in lots of numbers into a Google spreadsheet (I’m a spreadsheet person). My bad for not having a very good Google account but most have a Gmail account linked with them.
Error 497 was not intended to be a serious problem. It’s a way to report a bug and the best way to do it in such a high-volume area of Google Play that it often gets lost in the shuffle. It works even if the update is completely corrupted. The error itself is harmless though; you need to click on the link to download the update (if you have that available) and try again.
Google Play’s update policy is pretty simple. If it’s a bug, they will fix it. If it’s a legitimate bug, they won’t fix it. Sometimes that means taking a day or two to fix it and it’ll be fixed in a few hours. Other times it means waiting for the issue to get lost in the shuffle. Either way, it’s a good thing to report bugs.
Google Play’s error 497 is a legitimate bug. When you download a game from Google Play, it can get corrupted. The update is corrupt and corrupting your game is not an issue.
When you download a game from Google Play, it can get corrupted. Some games will download games for a specific reason, and some games will download games for the reason it is a known bug. In other cases, the game itself is a known bug. Google Play’s game manager can fix that. You can fix it by removing the game manager from the download list.
