Using a cache cleaner, I freed up some cache, netting me a little over 130 MB free space in the app storage. I then updated, and it worked. Freeing the cache again after the update, I only had 100 MB left. I also saw that the cache for the Play Store was about 28 MB, so apparently that's the size of the download for the Chrome update. Using a disk ...

I think that you have mis-interpreted For applications and all in-app products that you choose to sell on Google Play to mean all purchases made through apps distributed via Google Play rather than purchases made using the Google Play Store. When you use the Ebay app they don't take payment via Google Play and therefore do not need to pay Google 30%. ...

The solution is to ‘Disable’ the apps from the Android system settings and they will no longer appear in your Play Store updates list. E.g. for Google Currents: Settings > Apps > All > find ‘Currents’ - tap it, select ‘Disable’. The same applies to the all other listed apps in the question (with the exception of 'Google Play Newsstand’ which I couldn’t ...

You must first add your google account to the tablet. The Google Play app won't let you switch an account until there are two or more accounts on the device. So first add your google account. You will probably want to disable all of the synchronizing options. Once that is done, open the Google Play app, and you'll see the option to switch accounts. On top ...

For an update to an existing app, you just have to enable that in Google play's settings. For a newly installed app, I don't think it is possible. You can block the background data for Google play, but that's just a workaround and it has limitations like you won't be able to make in-app purchases when you are on mobile network.
