After one of the latest updates (not sure if it was the last one or a previous one) of the Google Play app, I am having an error trying to update a large app (42MB). It says:
Error Downloading . There is insufficient space on the device.
My device is a Samsung P1000 running Froyo. It's rooted, but the error was there before rooting it.
A quick Google search showed several Samsung users having the same problem (the app in question that was giving me the headache is Smurf's village). Some said that removing the updates to the Android Market (Google Play) app would fix it, but to me it was of no avail.
I also tried the procedure in this Google help FAQ to no avail.
Now I am stuck with a prehistoric version of the Market (that works on small apps) and still cannot update Smurf's Village or install big apps. How can I fix this?
EDIT: device has over 2GB of internal SD storage, 27GB of external SD card, so space is not an issue.
