Trying to download a game using Google Play and it keeps popping up a message saying "error code 498". What does that mean?

I get the same error (498 ) when I try to download Angry Birds Star Wars and Angry Birds Space. I have a Samsung Galaxy S. I contacted the Google Play store or whatever it's called. Their response was this:

Thanks for writing in. It looks like the apps you're trying to download is 38.2M and 35.5M, which is larger than your device's cache partition. Your device is unable to download apps on Google Play that are larger than the cache partition even though you may have enough internal storage space available. Any app larger than 20-25M is too big for certain devices, namely Samsung devices, to download at one time.

It's very disappointing. I hope they come up with some way around it.

I JUST TRIED TO TALK TO SOMEONE AT SAMSUNG ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, AND THE GUY WAS A TOTAL JERK. told me that it wasn't their problem. i asked him to read this page, sent him a link to it and he wouldn't even open it. said he's not allowed. i asked him to forward our issues to a supervisor and he told me that he doesn't have one. i kept a copy of our conversation. i gave him a terrible rating on the online survey but i doubt it will do any good.

So I have LG Opitmus Slider from Virgin Mobile & I'm having this problem too. & I've already done the whole uninstall updates & reinstall stuff. It worked for a couple updates I needed, but now I'm trying to download Instagram (I've had it on my phone before. But deleted for various reasons.) & Its giving me the Error 498 popup. Please help me? :(

I am too confused about it. Perhaps, if you know can you say me how to download "Tarzan for pc".

Are you all sure your not out of credit? 498 started when I lost my credit so im guessing it was the problem.

Error 498 is an error related to memory insufficiency and i solved it by inserting a SDcard into the card slot and did a system reset. i know it shows internal memory shortage especialy when you try to download apps via a PC to the android phone. But the SDcard solved my problem.
