  1. Click on the Start button.
  2. Type in “check for updates” and select Check for updates.
  3. Click the Check for updates button.

Fix #2: Update apps using Microsoft Store.

  1. Open the Microsoft Store app.
  2. Click on the three horizontal dots at the top-right corner.

Fix #3: Restart your PC.

If updating Windows and apps via the Microsoft Store did not help, make sure that the next thing you do is to refresh the system. To do that, simply restart your PC.

Fix #4: Refresh the Microsoft Store cache.

Sometimes, the Microsoft Store cache may become corrupted and get in the way when trying to install a game or app. To refresh this cache, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Start button.
  2. Type in “wsreset”
  3. Right click on wsreset and click on Run as administrator.
  4. A black pop-up window will show up so make sure not to close it before it finishes its task.

Fix #5: Check for Xbox Games server outage.

At times, the main reason for gaming issues such as being unable to download or install is not related to Microsoft store at all. They can sometimes be due to an issue with the servers so make sure to check if the Xbox Game Pass service for this particular game is affected. To do that, open the official Xbox.com website and check the Games & gaming section. Sometimes a particular issue with a certain game may show up here but not in the Microsoft Store app itself.
