The Google Play Store Bug
The update will reportedly fix the annoying issue. Users are hoping that they will be able to download the apps from the Google Play store without any fuss post the update.

Other than these methods, users can reset the app preference for Play Store along with switching the phone to the battery saving mode and then check if the problem is resolved.
