I was downloading an app from play store, which got paused due to an error "enable background data". I could get rid of this error but in the notification center I still see incomplete and paused download which I am not able to erase or remove. I tried restarting my phone

    Did you try turning background data back on for Play Store? – Dan Hulme May 25 '16 at 12:21
  • Just wipe the data for the "Downloads" and "Download Manager" apps. That won't delete the files you had already downloaded, but only the download history. Note this is for just getting rid of the notification, it might or might not work for app downloads. It works for normal downloads, however (such as ones through the browser). – Tamoghna Chowdhury May 25 '16 at 14:20

If you are on lollipop you must disable the battery saver to let Google play download the app


Stay on the play store and wait till it downloads not even let the screen shut
