Windows 8 Store Update Error Code 0x8024001E

Hi! I have installed Windows 8 Professional (through Dreamspark program)and while I am trying to update Maps and Games in Windows 8 Store, I get an error that the programs could not be updated, specifically I get the error code 0x8024001E.

Some of the programs I would like to install Windows installs, but some of them (like Maps and Games) it fails to update.

Any help is much appreciated

I have a solution to this problem.

Enable Windows + X and turn on the command line (Admin)

Now type in turn:

net stop wuauserv
rename c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution softwaredistribution.old
net start wuauserv
