An application requires an update for Google Play services?

Since I upgraded to lollipop, I have been getting this error popping up on my notification bar. I can clear the error off the screen but a minute or two later it returns. If i click on the error, it takes me to the Google play store. My Apps all show that they are up to date.

RIVERASM83,
What is the make/model of your device? Depending on the device, you may be able to clear the Google Play services app data and the Play Store's app data, and then reboot the device. - Danielle

Once of my apps crashed last night while I was using it. It also crashed Google play, I had to log back into my Google account. After I logged back in, the errors stopped. It looks like one of the application was causing the issue.

I had the same problem and fixed it by doing the following:

  1. Open application manager
  2. Uninstall updates, clear data and clear cache for Google Play Store and Google Play Services apps
  3. Restart phone. Eventually both apps will get the latest update.
