    Windows 10 error 0x8000ffff


    Hello,
    I have windows 10 pro, upgraded from original windows 8 pro OS. From 5 to 6 days, I am trying to update windows store app, but during installing app it is giving me error 0x8000ffff. Also when I am going to windows update, no new update is shown. Also I have tried the following options also, but same error is displayed.

    1. windows Reset - it is not working and is showing the message - nothing changed. I am doing windows reset using keeping my files.

    2. Checked the windows time and proxy and also steps below.

    Step 1: Try clearing the Store Cache:
    1. Press the Windows key + R keys.
    2. In the Run window, type WSReset.exe and click “Ok”.

    Step 2: Run built in Windows Store Apps troubleshooter and check if it helps. This would also fix any issues with Microsoft Sudoku.
    * Press Windows Key then type ‘troubleshoot’ and hit Enter
    * Select “View all” on the left panel and run “Windows Store Apps” troubleshooter from the list and see if it works.
    * Click on “Advanced” and then click on “Apply repair automatically”.
    * Click “Next” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process. Once done check if problem still persists.


    I would suggest you to perform System File Check (SFC), and then check if this fixes the issue.
    Follow the steps:
    a) Press “Windows Key + Q” button from the keyboard.
    b) Type “Command Prompt” without quotes in the search box.
    c) On the left pane, right click on the “Command Prompt” option and select “Run as Administrator”.
    d) Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit enter (There should be space between sfc and /).
    Note: It may prompt you for the Windows installation DVD to fix and to enable SFC to make more than minor repairs. Some files saved on your computer might get deleted when fixing corrupted files.

    Re-Register windows store apps using power shell - Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    I could not get to work any of the mentioned options, please help

    Thanks.

    You need to do that bringing it up to the latest update 10586.164 as that has fixed a lot of the problems.
    It will take some time to download and install and it may seem nothing is happening but it is
    So once it starts just let it do its job
