Error 800700E8 while trying to download ANY app

Title says it all. If I try to download an app, ANY app (Crunchyroll, Netflix, anything), it supposedly "searches" for the free app, then systematically crashes to Error 800700E8. This has been going on since yesterday.

I suspect something went wrong when they made the switch to real money, but hey, who am I to judge?

Didn't solve the problem. In fact, after I deleted the cache three times, I couldn't sign back on to XBox Live from the console. I'm starting to think it's a problem with my router, now.
