    Cannot download anything from microsoft store Error code 0x80070005


    Hi, for some reason, whenever I try to download an app from the Microsoft store, I get an error after 5 seconds with the aforementioned error code. I'm basically having the exact same problem as stated in this post: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/apps_windows_10-winapps-appscat_shopping/cannot-download-anything-on-microsoft-store-error/7babb7c2-b36b-4aa7-bbc3-eb7c5d866686


    I'm only posting a question here because I think I have tried literally everything I have found, including every step in the detailed answer provided in the above post, even rebooting Microsoft windows with the media creation tool. I don't know what else to do.

    Any help would be really appreciated

    :)
