    Cannot install any apps from windows store


    I have tried all tips from web about this problem including changing my region and language to United states re-install the apps app re-installed the media packs etc
    I still get "Try again Later - something happened at our end" this must be the most annoying error message ever.
    After a year of running windows 10 I still cant install any apps . every day I get a little bit nearer using Linux it's only one or two programs that won't run on it that is stopping me.
    Please can some one help?

    thanks

    Thanks I have run the scannow command and it came back with no integrity violations.
    I did the DISM repair windows image test as well and came back with "No component store corruption detected"
    I am a bit worried about doing repair install ! I don't want to lose anything.should I do it?
    Would the Icon cache repair be worth doing?

    With a repair install you'll not lose anything (you keep your documents and settings and it will re-install the default Windows 10 apps) but I doubt it would help with the Store not working. Nor would rebuilding icon cache. You could try it of course.

    You could try repairing the store ( + R then type wsreset in the run box and press <enter>).

    What might be interesting is whether it is your account that is corrupted rather than Windows.

    Do you sign on using a Microsoft account (email address)?

    What happens if you make a new user on your PC? Can you install Store apps on that account?

    I tried changing my account from a local to an outlook account and this at first seemed to work as I didn't get the error and it started downloading.
    But it didn't last long it came back with error 0x80240438.
    I googled that and tried disabling IPV6 in the network and rebooting and got a different error - tried again and got error 0x80240438 again.
    I wonder if it's worth it?

    Hopefully in your case the upgrade due 2nd August might fix it as it seems something in the Store App has messed up
