This error is usually related to the Proxy Settings of your phone. Please check if you have a proxy set up to your connect. You can check proxy settings for your phone by going into Settings > Wireless and networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point names. Select your default used setting then check the proxy field. Make sure it's empty or Not Set.

Another way is to clear the cache of Google Play. Go to Settings > Applications Manager > Google Play * (* stands for Google services). Tap on clear data and cache, then perform another download.

Method 1: The most common fix for most Android market or Google Play related errors.

Go to system settings>> Accounts>>Google>>remove your Gmail account
Now from settings>>Apps>>All> Force stop, Clear data and cache for Google Play Store, Google Service Framework and Download Manager (like in method 1)
Now again go to settings>> Accounts>>Google>>Add your gmail account
Restart your android and then accept all the Google terms and setup Google settings
Rerun Google Play Store and update or install your app.
