If you don't already know, follow the steps below:

1. Switch to airplane mode; 2. Goto Settings>Apps>All>Google Services Framework, then Force stop and Clear data; 3. Open airplane mode

Thank you very much for the instructions. I've tried this one, but without switching to the "AirPlane mode" just power the device off... and it haven't worked for me.

But now, after second time - it's updated!! Yay!!! Thanks one more time!!!

Note that this will revoke your security approval for Google Apps (if you are using Device Approvals). It also didn't work for me.

Follow up: actually this trick does work, the second time you do it. Currently downloading.

Yep, does not work.

it worked on the second time :)

doesn't work
