App Store not working get error, "Something has happened and your purchase could not be completed."

I have logged in to Windows Live, and my computer. Though earlier I could download Apps from the Windows App store with no problem, I now face the most useless error message EVER: 
"Your purchase couldn't be completed
Something has happened and your purchase could not be completed."

If anyone has any idea what "something" means, please let me know. I am getting very frustrated with most of these "apps."
If a Microsoft Windows employee reads this, please be more informative and less redundant with your error messages.
