    Hi, welcome to tenforums. The usual Powershell commands for repairing the all too often broken universal apps (tho' with 200m users there must be many this doesn't happen to!) are not recommended as they actually break them - MS is looking into this, reportedly.

    So the solution I would suggest to you is an in place upgrade repair install.
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    This will take some time but leave all in place.
    (Surprised any automatic update has caused you to lose documents..)
