    Every app I download from the market, free or paid, gives me this error. I am on Android 4.0.3.

    I googled the issue, and there were several results of people having it, on many different phones.
    How can I fix this? I have tried clearing cache, data, installing different versions of the market, using WIFI, 3G, etc.

    Thanks.

    I've tried everything too. It's pissing me off. I have a Nexus and it was fine for two weeks now all of a sudden the Market is not working.
    Is your device showing up in the actual web Marketplace? Mine isn't. The only device that is showing is/was my OG Droid.

    That sounds like a Google issue, not a phone/ROM issue.

    Mine doesn't, no.

    I had to restore to GB on my Droid 3 since I couldn't fix it. I might try flashing ICS again though.

    Different Solution XDA style

    When downloading files gets out error -101.

    1). Reload this phone
    2). Connect to your home wifi.
    3). On the router to change the time zone. Differences on how much and where not.
    4). Now check. Should all downloaded. If everything is OK, return back to the time zone.

    Sign into gmail.
    Open, android market, setting, content filtering, clicked Everyone.. then clicked Then s
    how all.. Then press ok.

    Settings > aplication > all > Google Services Framework and force stop, clear cache then reboot your phone

    check if you have proxy settings in your apn, if you do, delete them and it should fix the problem

    deleting all of the updates to Market in Settings/Applications/Manage/Market app
    What failed:

    • Remove account, add account.
    • Clear market data, remove account, add account.
    • Clear market data, remove account, ‘reboot’, add account.
    • Install Android Market 3.1.3, clear market data, remove account, ‘reboot’, add account.
    • Install Android Market 3.1.3, clear market data, remove account, ‘reboot’, add account, reboot.
    What worked:
    • Install Android Market 3.1.3, clear market data, remove account, ‘power off', add account, 'power off'.
    Instead of deleteing the account. I tried syncing the account.

    It worked.

    1/2 the time without a reboot

    Please note that after all that: it was my brother's phone!
