This answer was rated:

Hi guys, wonder if you can help. Just 11 months ago, I purchased a Quad Core Android Tablet, 10" touch screen, 1Gb ram, 8Gb storage, and an expansion 32Gb SD card, running Android 4.4 OS. From UKTabletOnLine. All works fine, but it won't update any of the apps. It comes up with a list requiring update, also tells me the SD card is mounted, but when I try to update any app, it tells me "Insufficient storage available" I've been through file manager and moved everything to the SD card that I can, but to no avail.
Any ideas?
Many thanks ***** *****
Hi, Thanks for using JustAnswer. This is Leela and I will help you with the question today. Most likely you seem to have problem with removal of Un wanted files, like temporary files, etc from INTERNAL STORAGE.As you have moved lot of data, I guess you should have some freespace. Some Apps like facebook, whatsapp, etc can use ONLY INTERNAL STORAGE, they cannot store on external sd card. If possible can you check if there are any videos in facebook, whatsapp and try to remove them. Once you get some more space, please try to install "du speed booster" app and try to clear RAM and some space in Internal memory and see if you can update 1 or 2 apps or not. Mostly after you freeup space with Du Speed booster, depending on amount of space it can free-up, you should be able to update your apps. Please try and let me know how things go. Thanks,Leela

I don't use FB or Whatsapp, I've just tried to install Du Speed Booster, but it says "Insufficient Storage available".......

OK.Did you try poweroff, then power on the phone? If not, please try it.Is it possible to uninstall any unnecessary app, try to get du speedbooster app and see if you can clear unwanted files. Thanks,Leela

Sorry for the delay, would you believe my PC just blue-screened! However, it's come back up ok, so back to my tablet. I just powered off and on, and removed several large apps. Managed to get Du Speed Booster installed, and have gone through with that getting rid of lots of stuff. It has now successfully updated 12 apps, so I guess my problem has been solved.

Great stuff, many thanks for your help.
