    Error Code: 0x803FB005 on download from Windows Store


    I recently re-installed Windows 10 and in the process of re-installing my apps I hit Error Code: 0x803FB005 when trying to download Cribbage Classic, a game which I had successfully installed in the past.
    Tried all of the published "fixes" I could find, all to no avail.
    Got no help at all from the various Windows "support"sites.

    Just what does this error code mean, and how does one get around it?

    This situation has arisen in the past but seems to disappear as suddenly as it appears.
    Another Windows Wonder?

    The problem is that this error code is unknown.
    Code:
    C:\tools> .\err* 0x803FB005
    # No results found for hex 0x803fb005 / decimal -2143309819
    # NOT FOUND: 0x803FB005
    It's not even listed in online MSDN documentation.
    Not even HERE
    And yes, not even UWP error codes list such code

    Don't blame Windows "support" sites, this is a question for "Cribbage Classic" developers probably.
