  1. Microsoft Store won't download anything, error code 0x80073CFE


    Hi all,


    I have an issue where the windows store won't download or update anything and is providing the error 0x80073CFE. I have tried:

    1. Resetting the computer
    2. Updating the computer
    3. Updating all of the drivers for the graphics card, motherboard ect
    4. Resetting the cache for Microsoft store via "Run" windows + r
    5. Resetting the store from settings
    6. Making a new account in the Microsoft store and trying there
    7. Force quitting the store from settings
    8. Running the [COLOR=rgba58, 58, 58, 1]SFC/scannow [/COLOR]command in terminal to do a scan, which did find issues, so I resolved those issues, did the scan again and it found no issues
    9. Resetting my computer while retaining data on the computer
    10. Doing a reset where I uninstalled literally everything from the computer and did a fresh install of Windows
    11. Activating Windows
    12. Doing steps 1-8 after activating Windows. the SFC/scannow command is finding no issues.

    None of these helped resolve the issue. Doing a complete wipe and then installing a fresh install of windows helped for about a month, but the issue is back. I went online again to see if I could find other steps, but instead found a lot of largely unresolved posts of this same problem that were all locked, some from 6 years ago. Please resolve this issue, it seems like a huge bug.

    :)

    Reset the store through add/remove programs, rebooted - error 0x80073CFE

    Uninstalled store through powershell, rebooted, reinstalled through powershell, rebooted - error 0x80073CFE

    Created a new user account - error 0x80073CFE
    sfc is fine

    dism is fine

    using windows antivirus with no special rules or exceptions.

    nothing windows is blocked in firewall or hosts file.

    UAC is on

    Pin is set

    I used another computer that has the same microsoft account associated with it's product key and downloads/updates work fine.
