I read this on another forum, and since I had nothing better to do I gave it a shot...........and it worked.
Home/menu/settings/apps/all/google services framework/
Once it opens clear data and force stop it.
Hit home/settings/about phone/check for updates.
It took me 7-8 times doing it, and then it started downloading the update, installed, and no problems at all. Some of the other people on that forum did it 3 times and it worked, some did it 15 and it worked, and of course some did it a lot and nothing happened.
Nothing is lost by clearing the data and force stopping it, so no fear there.
Give it a shot, you really have nothing to loose but about 10 minutes of time............and you have a lot to gain if it works.
