I have two Lenovo tab 20A10-70 tablets. Identical with Android 5.0. All of a sudden, both units develop a "Launcher 3 " error, Tried clearing its cache but nothing helps and no apps will lanuch. New to Android and need help.

When you said you cleared cache I assume you meant wiping the cache partition.
There is a hard reset available on Android. The below link is for the A10 but I could only find a video for the A30 which should be the same steps. That video shows the wipe cache partition which I would do first if not done already.
Somewhat of a coincidence that both are having the same problem unless it was an update that caused the problem.

Both units needed the Android 6.0 update after hard resets. Wiped everything not moved to the SD cards. Much faster platform now, will see how it works out as I never put any personal or financial info on them and just watch sports, movies or play games.

This issue is almost certainly caused by a recent buggy update to Google Play services – version 12.8.72.

My Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70F (running Android 5.0.1) has become very unstable since the update was automatically installed on Saturday.

I managed to fix this issue with my tablet. These are the steps I took (it case it helps anyone else):
- Go to Settings -> Accounts -> Google -> Manage your Google Account.
- A blank white screen shows.
- Wait 3-4 minutes until regular display appears (I periodically tapped the screen to prevent the tablet going to sleep).
- Tablet now works fine again – no need to repeat this or do anything further!
