Does anybody know how to fix this error? My Android device is a tablet running 4.4 KitKat. I have Google Play Services but for some reason I still can't login or even add a new account. The app giving the error is Google Account Manager, and this all started when I deleted Chrome.Here is what the problem looks like... Except I don't know how to add images....

    What app is giving this error? When did it start happening? What version of Android do you have, and what device? Jun 2, 2016 at 3:24
  • Hey Matthew,how ya doing? Just more info is this all started when I deleted chrome because I only needed it to download Minecraft apk, then the dreaded com.Google.gapps started popping up Jun 4, 2016 at 0:33
  • Hey, I didn't see your comment -- you have to use @name to notify someone (so @Matthew) -- but fortunately I stumbled across it again. Thank you for adding the information. A specific make/model for your device would be helpful. In the meantime, check this out: android.stackexchange.com/q/106494/1465 Jun 4, 2016 at 7:35
  • @Matthew dude, I've seen that one before, I've literally checked almost EVERY forum I could find this is my LAST HOPE. My device is Maxwest and also I can't download anything from play store, it just keeps saying authentication required and I need to sign in, also I made a new account (before that ) but was having probs with that as well so I removed it and i can't add a new because of the error and I don't want to remove my account cuz I won't be able to re-add it from the looks of things... And this ALL started because of deleting chrome..........WHYYYYYYYY?! Jun 5, 2016 at 23:24

First of all, check of internet connection is reliable and stable. Try re-logging in to your google account. Try restarting your device.

If none of the above help, upload a screenshot, so ig is visible, what exactly the problem looks like. (A screenshot can be captured, by swiping the edge of your palm across the screen, right to left).

  • Please note that "swiping the edge across the screen" is only applicable to Samsung devices. On most devices, you have to hold volume down+power.

This is a common issue n there are many possibilities to what could be causing it:

  1. The date may be incorrect in the settings, causing syncing issues.
  2. You can install the last version of play store from mirror siteweb
