Apps Not Updating Due To Problem With Windows 8 Updates

It might be an issue with windows 8 updates as well if you are facing the issue when apps not updating or installing or not getting downloaded as modern UI apps updates are linked to the windows 8 updates as well, to fix this you can follow the steps mentioned below.

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Below System and Security select Find and fix problems (or) select System and Security – Action Center – Troubleshooting.

3. Select Fix problems with Windows update.

4. Select Next and when the process is complete select Finish.

In some cases when you notice that a app you started downloading is no longer installing or download is not getting completed then it could be the case when that app might have been removed from the Store. This means you can see the app description page on the web, but when you try to view the app in the Store, you’ll see a message that the app isn’t available.
