Microsoft Store Error 0x87AF000B

Whenever I try to download anything in the Microsoft store, I receive the following message:

Something unexpected happened

The error code is 0x87AF000B, in case you need it.

I have restarted the computer several times to no avail.

How can I fix this error.  I am unable to download anything.

Thank you.
