Android: issue with updating apps

When you have an Android smartphone and get an error with code ‘RPC:S-5:AEC-0’ when updating your Apps, carry out the following steps to get it working again:

  1. Goto Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store and press ‘Clear data’ and ‘Stop now’
  2. Goto Settings > Google (in the Account section) en select your e-mail adres. Choose ‘Remove Account’ from the menu.
  3. Still in Settings, add a Google account, choose existing and enter your e-mail address and password.

Now you should be able to update your Apps as usual.

Remark: On my Google Nexus device with Android version 4.1.2,  I got this error after clearing the data of the ‘Google Service Framework’.
