Fix Windows 10 Store Operation Failed Error 0x80073CF6

Some time ago, Microsoft introduced us to the concept of an app store for downloading and installing apps. In the Microsoft Store we can download and/or update all the applications created for Windows in a few clicks. But of course, as with any application, there are some errors when installing it or trying to download the application.

The error codes you can get from the Microsoft Store can be related to various causes, such as: For example, error code 0x8024600e when trying to install or update apps from Microsoft Store or error code c101a006 in case of temporary server failure. . I will explain in a few lines how we can fix some of the error codes we get in Microsoft Store when using Windows.
