This fixed the issue for me:

I had the same problem and fixed it with the script below.

  1. Right click on the Start Menu button -> Search -> Windows PowerShell -> Run As administrator
  2. Paste the following command into PowerShell and execute it:

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


fixed my problem
