According to a user on The Transformers' Forum:
"I had the same problem but fixed it. Go to
Settings - Apps- All- Download managerand Clear data. Then go to
Settings - Apps - All - Google Play Storeand Clear cache. Play Store should work and if not try restarting your device."
There is another answer that says that Uninstalling the updates of Google Play app and restarting the device and updating it again solved the issue,
"Uninstall all updates to Google Play, reverting to the original market, then re-starting that, and letting it re-update to Google Play, then re-starting it again."
However vague, clearing the data on Google Play Store app might do the job.
I get this error myself, and it looks like this is mostly a network issue. May be because of some stale values on device, clearing application cache for Google Play or Download Manager can help.
However trying a different network (wifi instead of data) works for me. It might also help if you change DNS addresses on device, I guess.

Had the problem on an Alcatel device where "all apps" in settings - apps does not exist. Using WLAN instead of 3g for downloading from Play Store worked. Not sure if it will now also work again on 3g.
