Welcome to iMore! iTunes requires a valid payment credit card on file, even for free apps. As @BBMaverick stated, you need to update your credit card information:
1. Open iTunes Store or App Store on your phone
2. Scroll down to the bottom and tap on your Apple ID
3. Tap on View Apple ID
4. Enter your password
5. Tap on Payment Information
6. Update your info
