    Clean install of 9841 problems


    I was forced to do a clean install of 9841 this morning. Computer started acting crazy using 9879. Actually I think I messed around with it too much. :) Anyhow... Reformatted my hard drive, clean install from USB. Now when I try and install the next preview build I get Failed to check for new preview build please try again later 0x80240438

    Anyone else had this issue? Help?

    I am getting the same thing and I am running 9879. I was going to suggest turning on fast check but that's not the problem. Server problem at MS maybe?

    I was on 9879, but it started getting buggy. I just realized the app store isn't working either. I get a similar error code. Did you just upgrade to that preview build or have been running it a while?

    I have been running it since it rolled out on Wednesday. Googled the error and it says something about store being down also.

    Thanks man! I guess I will just wait it out and see. What a PIA. Not sure if I even want to go back to 9879, but the idea that it won't let me is driving me nuts. lol!!

    I'm suspecting there might be a server issue by Microsoft at the moment, only based on that I have this same issue suddenly now with two computers using different routers and broadband ISP, and that a mate from my native Finland contacted me in Skype 15 minutes ago asking what to do as he has the same issue trying to upgrade build 9860.

    This was quite clearly a Microsoft server / Store issue, on Microsoft systems. At the same time this started to happen to us, at our sister site the Eight Forums I saw one thread where uses was reporting issues with failing app installations from store, I believe these were linked, the same issue.

    Seems to be fixed now, at least I am able to download and install upgrade builds and install from Store.
