What to do if I get Error 911
When you get this error 911, you must first delete the cache and data of Google services. We have mentioned the steps to clear the cache in the previous solutions. If this does not solve the problem and you use a wifi connection that requires a login to the web page, probably the authentication expired. Access the new APN via the Android browser. Open Google's Play Store and run the app update again. If this method didn't work then the problem could be the wifi network.
In this case, simply switch to another Wi-Fi network and perform the update. The 911 error should disappear with access to the new Wi-Fi network.
If the problem persists, then try to use the mobile network data services instead of the wifi connection. Close the wifi and now open the Google Play and download / update applications or games. However, this method is only suitable for applications and games that are small in size. For larger updates it is recommended to use the WiFi network to safeguard the excessive consumption of your mobile data.
