Whenever I try to install apps, I get the "insufficient storage available" message on Google Play. I've tried everything, from clearing the cache to doing a factory reset, but it didn't help.

Cache uses random access memory, your issue seems to be insufficient physical memory for storage. So, as suggested, add another or a larger SD memory card or get rid of apps u don't use, store pictures and videos in another media, etc.

Remove apps & clean out memory space. Then download and reinstall. Or you may be able to add a larger external memory card.

BLU Advance 5.0 Android phone won't let me add apps as there is "insufficient space." File Explorer says phone storage is 99% full but shows few files anywhere in the folders

1) go to Settings, and under Device, click Storage, then click Transfer data to SD Card.
2) go to Settings, and under Device, click Apps, then for every app : click on the app name, then on storage, then on Clear the cache.
3) If you don't want to repeat this cumbersome process manually from time to time, many apps can do it for you. I personnaly use one called AppMgr III, installable from Google Play.

It says "unfortunately s has stop" & after I push ok botton it message pops up again.

It looks like the Google Play Services (if you have a device that require Google Play Services) needs a reboot or you need to clean cache. If you are using google apps in a device that have no Google Play Services, then the apps will crash.
Also, clean the cache, go to settings, storage, and tap at cache data,this will clean the apps cache just in case there is a corrupt log.

On my Lg optimus f6 that ive had for a month says insufficient. Storage when i try to install only 4.95 mb. But my internal storage is 137 mb

clear the cache by going to setting, application manager, and clicking each app and tapping delete cache. make sure your pics and videos are stored externally and not on the root storage device.

What does error message 498 mean

It is a Cache related issue ou can solve it like so.

Method 1: Go to settings>>Apps>>Select "All" tab From the "All" apps list>> Find Google Play Store>> Clear Data and Cache From the "All" apps list>> Find Google Service Framework >> Clear Data and Cache Now restart Google Play Store and try to download/update the app or games.

Method 2: Try a different Gmail account in your Google Play Store. For this: Open Google Play Store Go to settings >> Accounts>> Choose Account or add new account Now try to download or install the app or game.

Method 3: Go to system settings >> Accounts >> Google >> remove your Gmail account From settings >> Apps >>All >> Force stop, Clear data and cache for Google Play Store, Google Service Framework and Download Manager (like in method 1) Again, go to settings >> Accounts >> Google >> Add your Gmail account Restart your android and then accept all the Google terms and setup Google settings Run Google Play Store and update or install your app. These methods are common solutions to many android market related problems. Hope you have now successfully downloaded your apps or games from the Google Play Store.

I have a Z796C ZTE phone and whenever I try to download an update or an App, I get a message that states that I have insufficient storage space available. The phone has 1.61G

Well with the information you supplied, it sounds like you have a phone full of pictures, (small files) video clips, (big files) and apps (some small, some huge) and prior to updating your phone you will need to delete enough to install your updates. The 1.61G is what? Empty storage space? Processor ? If you want more help you will have to take the time to actually give more information. Because that phone has 4 GB of built-in storage... Is it new? Is it full of pics, vids and apps or is there an out of the ordinary reason you get the message. Are you installing the app in the correct place?
