New Google ChromeOS updates cause 100% CPU usage, heating issues

Recent ChromeOS updates cause a Google Play Store service to utilize 100% of the CPU, making devices hot and experience performance issues.

Since users began updating to ChromeOS 85.0.4183.108 and later, apps are running erratically, devices get hot, fans are running at high speed, and the battery is drained too quickly.

After users investigated the issue, it was found to be caused by the Google Play 'com.android.vending:download_service' suddenly utilizing 95-100% of the CPU for an extended period.

The com.android.vending:download_service service is used to download new updates from the Google Play Store when available.
