Hi Somudranil,

Welcome to the Microsoft Community.

1.    Were there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?

2.    Are you able to pin other Windows Store apps?

This issue could have occurred due to corrupted system files. I suggest you to run the sfc scan and check if it helps.

System File Checker is a utility in Microsoft Windows that allows users to scan for and restore corruptions in Windows system files. Follow these steps to run the command and check if it helps.

1.    Press Windows key + X on the keyboard.

2.    Click on Command prompt (Admin).

3.    Type ‘sfc /scannow’ without quotes and hit Enter.

Let us know the results. If the issue persists, we’re here to help.
