More thoughts about Error 923

I got this error when my Wi-Fi connection was having problems. So you can try disabling and enabling Wi-Fi. Some people have found that turning on the airplane mode on and off helps. If you find that you still get this error while downloading/upgrading apps, you can try it in other Wi-Fi networks and hotspots other than yours.

But if you keep getting this error then, you can try other guaranteed methods like wiping cache partition or even factory resetting your phone. Those will remove everything from your phone.
