    Windows Store Apps Not Updating


    Greetings tenforums,

    I have recently encountered a problem with the updates on the Windows Store. The apps are not updating anymore and are stuck. I have tried to follow most of the methods provided online including the troubleshoot step but to no avail. The troubleshoot simply couldn't find any issues to solve. Windows Update on the other hand, is working fine. Here's a screenshot of the progress.

  2. Store apps not updating

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family. I would be happy to assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that the Store Apps do not update.

    I would suggest you to place the computer in a Clean Boot situation and check if it helps to isolate and identify the issue. Please follow the below steps.

    Method 1:

    Follow these steps to run the windows in built troubleshooter:

    a) Write Troubleshooting in the search box and hit enter.

    b) Click on Troubleshooting
    tab.

    c) Click on view all option on the upper left corner.

    d) Select the Windows Store Apps options from the list.

    e) Click Next to run the Troubleshooter

    Method 2: Reset the Store Cache.

    Press on Windows key +R from the Keyboard to open the Run Command Dialog Box.

    Type in wsreset

    Method 3: Please try to re-register the Store App. Run the following in a Command Window (CMD) and see if it helps to resolve the issue.


    • powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML

    Hope the above information was helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.

    I'm having the same problem. None of the troubleshooting steps that I've found have worked.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one. Hopefully there is a fix underway somehow. Are your mail and calendar apps working?, they are also dead and fail to load for me. They both just get stuck at the loading page and stay that way.

    Greetings Brink and thank you for your response!,

    I have tried that method before starting this thread as I constantly searched and tried various methods, sadly none helped.

    Just tried it myself as well. Didn't work aside from making me look at a blank screen for 5 minutes after logging in.

    Okay, I just tried method #2 again and it worked!. It's updating and the mail and calendar apps both finally work. Thank you very much!. I've been using this site since the vistax64 days for each version of Windows and the community are second to none.

    Hope you find a fix Moofey.

    I do have indications of progress though. My downloads are no longer just hanging at "pending," but they just sit there at "0.0 MB downloaded" now.

    That's the same problem I had, Method #2 in the link above fixed it after a reboot.

    Sorry to further bother you Brink. But what could have been the problem to this seeing how problem #2 solved it. I don't want to run into this chaos again so I'd love to know.

    Thanks a lot once again.

    Tried #2 for a second time, still no good.

    In addition if I try to pause all or remove apps from the download queue, the store freezes. If I try to restart the Windows Update service, it hangs while stopping and I have to taskkill /f it. The store never seems to clue in on what's happening, and once I get windows update restarted it all goes back to pending.

    I hate Windows.

    Moofey,

    Are you having any issues with Windows Update as well?

    Do you have a 3rd party AV or security program installed that may be blocking it?
