For the past few days I’ve had the following error whenever I try to update or download an application from the Android Market on my Nexus S running the Ice Cream Sandwich.
*App Name* Can’t Be Downloaded Due to An Error (-101)
It turns out to be quite a simple fix. The Google account that I originally entered to set up my phone was @googlemail.com. Around a year ago I enabled @gmail.com on the same account. Generally around the web including the web based Android Market I can log in using either domain but it appears Android only accepts @gmail.com now.
Luckily this doesn’t require much effort to fix and you don’t have to wipe the phone or lose any data. On the phone handset just go to:
Settings > Accounts & Sync > Add Account > Select Google and add your account using the gmail.com address.
Once that is done go back to Accounts & Sync and remove the googlemail.com account.
