Error 927 is an error which belongs to the developers of the application you are trying to install. This error appears because of a network connection error in a few cases, and it also contains a "Package file is invalid" message when the update isn't validated properly or simply fails to validate with the Google Play servers. Usually the error disappears when the developer is contacted in order to fix their application. And there's nothing users can do except for waiting, because their phones are OK, the problem is in the server.
