I thought this might deserve a bit of attention, for a eventual bug fix from Google? At least might help some users stuck with this same error.
Finally I found a tip that Google Home app’s language (through phone Settings app, and there the Google Home app settings + language) selection had helped somebody.
And while I can’t believe it, that was indeed the case for me as well! My phone language is Finnish, and Google Home had defaulted to that language. I selected UK English for the application, and the google Assistant activation finally worked.
Please note: I did select English (UK) for Google Assistant on every attempt, but the activation fails whatever the user chooses, as long as the Google Home app language is something “exotic” (possibly any unsupported language by Google assistant)?
Could somebody please escalate this to correct development team? Not very user friendly error, and very tough to troubleshoot. And should be super easy fix.

I just bought a new Google Nest Mini and I'm trying to set it up on IOS. I'm getting 83902 kGSKErrorDomain in the setup.
I see that many have this issues but Google didn't fix it. Feels incredible to have people buy for a product which doesn't work at all or needs 100 workarounds.
Is there any fix for this or should I return it?
I am trying to set up my father's new Google Nest Hub and I get an error saying "The operation couldn't be completed. (kGSKErrorDomain error-83905)." I see other people have had this issue because their first language is not English. That is not our issue, we are English speakers only. I have tried multiple restarts, factory reset, reset the Wifi, different iPhones/iPads, all to no avail. I have even returned two of the displays and Best Buy was absolutely no help, they will just happily replace it over and over. Any suggestions?
Thanks for bringing this up.
Can you please verify what Google Home/Nest speakers are you using? Are you trying to set up your device on a new WiFi network?
