Installing and updating built-in apps not working, Error 0x80240017, 0x80246007

I tried to update all the built-in apps (Mail, Video, Bing etc.), and when I hit "update", the green dot progress bar just kept spinning across the top for about 10 minutes. Tried again, same thing.

So I tried going to All apps and uninstalling then reinstalling all of them. Then this happens:

Edit: I'm also getting these errors:

And now these x's on the tiles:
Dont know if this will help any but I had an issue with updating, installing, and launching apps myself and I found it was a Windows Update issue and not an issue with the Store or app itself. Here is how you can fix the Windows Update issues. Look below!

Step to fix apps not installing or updating.

First, make sure Windows Update is NOT running. Then pull out the menu on the right that has the options to Search, Start, etc. Click or touch Search. Click or touch Settings under the search field. Type troubleshooting into the search field. Then click or touch Troubleshooting over on the left. Once it is up and running, click or touch View All. Once it finishes loading all, you should see Windows Update on the bottom. Click or touch it! It will find a few issues, for me I had 4. I also was running Windows Update at the time and that is why I am instructing you to close it first (first time it only fixed 2 of the 4 issues and then after closing it, Troubleshooting fixed all 4). 

If all issues are fixed reboot your system. If all of them were not fixed, close some stuff and run Troubleshooting again (refer to the above for the how-to-do). If again it does not fix them all, reboot your device and then run it again after a fresh reboot of the first items fixed. 

Good luck and remember, "We are their guinea pigs".
