    Cant Update Universal Apps in the Windows Store


    So its pretty much just as the title says. I try to update anything or download anything I get a message that states.

    Try that again, Error, See details

    Inside it says.

    Something went wrong.
    Error code 0x80070005, in case you need it

    Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    Do a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    It said windows did not find any integrity violations.

    Hello PeanutUnion, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Sometimes resetting the Store cache helps with Store update issues.
