The 495 problem occured after an update of my Samsung account.
After deleting the Samsung account, the problem was gone.

note:
The delete button removes Samsung contacts and messages.
Google contacts etc. were unaffected.

I’ve had the same problem for a few weeks. Most app on my phone were working just fine, but when downloading or updating apps I got error 495 (I have not tried using wifi). I tried all the solutions posted online but nothing worked, finally out of pure desperation I tried to check all my settings... It turned out my internet settings was wrong - for some reason my access point had been changed from “internet” to “WAP”. When using WAP your device will have internet access and most apps will work, but when downloading or updating you will get error 495. To solve the problem I just required a new internet configuration from my service provider – as soon as I got the new settings my phone started to update all apps.

To check access point go to “settings – more – mobile networks – access point names” (LG P990 - android 4.0.4)

Hope this can help some of you with the dreaded error 495 :D

it has to be abroad travel - Same errors 495 or 927 to me while downloading. I had gone to USA and updated apps over WIFI -- Now 3G connection in India does not download anything in App Store!? or rather even upgrade any app!!!

FB upload download works like a charm or even whats-app etc works just fine -- it is just the Google Play and I guess in recent time Samsung push service has also not worked -- At least I did not see it working in past several months!!?

I had the same issue with youtube and facebook update through Office WiFi Network Which showed error (495). Later came to know that My office has blocked all social networking sites through Cyberoam which even restricts updates of social networking apps through this network.
