Windows apps "no applicable app licence found"


When I open a photo in the windows photos app, the app suddenly closes and I get an error box saying "no applicable app licence found". This just started happening, and I can't find a fix for it. Other apps seem to be working, like weather, and people, however some other apps I downloaded are giving the same error.

Any ideas? Thanks so much!
