Cannot install Windows 8 apps error 0x80073cf9.

Original title : Windows 8 mail app error 0x80073cf9

 

I applied the recent updates and the mail app would not install, giving the error ox80073cf9. I tried uninstalling, now the mail app will still not install - same error, but now the mail, calendar, and people apps are all removed from my start screen.

The problem is that the folder AUInstallAgent is missing from the Windows folder.....

I had this problem, recreated the folder and low and behold all is working fine.

Now what I want to know is why the folder disappeared in the first place, because I didn't delete it, and looking around the web I'm not alone....
