Microsoft Store - Something happened on our end. Try again later.

Every single time for the past week when I try to download an app from the store I get the error "Something happened on our end.  Try again later."  The new update did not help.  Please help me.


Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

Method 2: Perform System File Check (SFC), and then check if this fixes the issue.
Follow the steps:

b. Type cmd without quotes in the search box.
