Error 498 is one of the most common errors encountered while downloading apps or games from the Google Play Store. The error is usually triggered when your phone doesn’t have sufficient storage space to install new apps or games. In most cases, its your Android device’s cache ( temporary ) memory that causes this error. However the error can also be rated to your phone’s internal and external memory.
So essentially the Google Play Store Error 498 occurs when the app or game you are downloading is more than the size of your phone’s cache partition. For example: The Google Play Store error 498 will be triggered on your phone if you are downloading an app or game of 50MB, but your phone has a cache partition of 40 MB. This doesn’t mean that your android device doesn’t have enough cache memory, it’s just that your android device cannot download a file of more than 40 MB in one go.
