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 22.214.171.124; the version in my regular user account for news is 126.96.36.1993; 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.
