    I´ve been experiencing this error while attempting to download apps from the store. When the download starts, it stop after a few seconds and states that is a problem from MS end and to wait a few minutes, also giving the error code 0x80240438.

    At first i thought it was a MS server problem and eventually it would be fixed but, i´m having this problem over a week now, so it´s likely a local problem.

    Any help deeply appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum

    Try this, at an elevated command prompt type wsreset.

    One more thing, that I used once on a system having a Store problem. Open up powershell and run this. Be aware it takes some time to do it's work and will install ALL the default apps.

    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Did all except the last one (the one involving paying), no luck...

    Already tried that code or a similar one. Last time it broke the store and apps completely :) Had to restore to a previous restore point.

    Created a restore point and tried your code... same result, it breaks the store and all apps.

    Didn´t work any of them...

    I seldom use the win store so it wont justify doing a refresh but i may try it further on the road if i really need it.

    Tks for the help you guys!

    Best regards,

    I had a similar issue but thing just would not update at all. They would just sit there.

    What worked for me was not only doing the wsreset(Part One below) but also following Part Two here:
