Windows 8 News article download

Today (22 April 2013) the downloading of offline News Articles in Windows 8 News gives the following error message:


"There was an error downloading articles.  To try again, press refresh".


Refreshing causes the same error message.  I have rebooted, uninstalled and reinstalled News and used the Microsoft App TroubleShooter, all to no avail.  Anyone else getting a similar error?  Any thoughts how to resolve?


Update (23 April 2013).  I discovered my Admin Account did not have the problem.  Checked the version of News in the Admin Account and it is; the version in my regular user account for news is; and is a recent update (14 April 2013).  I stopped short of updating my Admin Account News to isolate if the problem was something in the recent update.


Update (24 April 2013).  It appears to be working correctly again.

Same error occurred since Apr 22nd afternoon...
