The new app installation or upgrade requires 500 MB (512Mb) of space to be existing freely on your system.
That's why the issue.
I suggest deleting some (useless) WhatsApp forwarded/received videos to free the space above 600Mb. Then retry the installation.
Also at a later point in time take the backup on a desktop and delete the WhatsApp media or move the same to the external memory card.
Hope this should solve your issues.

Hi -- thanks! Just wondering -- how can you tell that 500 is the number? And the problem is that I already deleted all of my videos, so there's only so much more I can delete (storage space REALLY seems to be a problem with this phone).

Just that I use my android phone way too much
How much is the internal storage for your device? All Moto G should come with at least a 16Gb of internal storage.
What I suggest is get an external storage a Sd Card and move all your images and videos onto the card.
Also, uninstall the apps you aren't using.
I suggest installing
1)a cleaner program CM cleaner should do good, and uninstall it after the cleaning.
2)ASUS File manager for checking file managing.

You can root the phone and add in your external card as your internal storage which actually removes you the option of removing the card whenever you want.
But that's a bit advanced stuff. Which can actually spoil your phone if improperly done?
If you are interested in doing so please look in google for forum.xda-developers

Yes, that sounds REALLY advanced -- please understand that I'm hardly a "techie." Still, thank you for the suggestion!
The bottom line, though, is that it sounds like there is, in fact, no SIMPLE way to add extra storage to a 1st generation Moto G?

Not that advanced actually.
All you need is a rooting tool (Kingo root should be good) to root the device; then install twrp; then download a custom rom zip of your choice; reboot to recovery flash it.
If you are doubtful, the forums will explain it in a neat friendly way. ( not that complicated, actually, except they frighten you too much.)
