    Same here, Yesterday I was able to download applications like Netflix and Facebook. For the sake of trial and error I removed Facebook and tried to re-install. Ended up getting the same error code. Looks like we will be waiting until Microsoft realizes there is an issue....Or one of us here decides to call in and report the error. Either way Seems like I will just have to wait for now.

    I just purchased a new laptop today and am using Windows 8 (and the app store) for the first time. I'm glad to know that what I thought was a glitch isn't unique to me!

    I guess this is the answer. The servers are down but it has been a while now.

    Windows 8.1


    I am experiencing the exact same thing. New Surface Pro 3 out of the box yesterday, could install from the Store. Today, can't do it with error code 0x80244022. Did run Updates, but can't recall whether I installed from Store before or after Windows Update. Since it was new and I wasn't going to really lose anything but a day of screwing around with it, I did a factory reset on it. After factory reset - with no run of Windows Update - same error still occurs.

    Surface Pro 3 8.1


    ::AMAZING::I have had quite the experience since the 2nd of Nov. I am on my 3rd Surface Pro 3; all from Best Buy. The first worked amazing and I was so happy; however, on the 3rd day I went to turn it on and it would not turn on. It took about 25 minutes of every few minutes, trying different hold times. Googled it a and found a reset with power and volume keys. Same thing happened the day after, so I took the SP3 back and they exchanged it, no problem. Second one, I get home, turn it on, first thing is to update.... won't do a windows update, froze for about an hour, turned off. I let it chill for over 5 mintues, then I tried to turn it on, no response, seriously? Got it going about 5 minutes later and I went to do the update, it did the update, but in a much different way than the first SP3 I had. I felt as if the 1st was one big update with with one update after the initial restart, however the second SP3 needed 4 individual updates with restarts. Worked well for 2 days, then twice it took over 10 minutes to start, no response to the start button. I was thinking, Best Buy is going to think I'm nuts.

    Took
    it back, Best Buy was very cool, no hassle, exchanged it out. #3!!! Updates went well, but I can't download apps from the Microsoft App Store. I've been on the internet for the last 4 hours, trying to find a solution & I just found this forum and felt the need to share this story. I guess I will wait to see if they release a firmware update in the next couple days, if not, I'll have to get a different device, this is crazy. I'm supposed to go to Germany in Dec and I have to have a reliable device, too bad, I love this thing! It's SO practical! FK!

    thanks, for reading, open to suggestions.

    I think they will, I also think your device is fine. This is not limited to a certain device but to the store itself. I vote for giving it a couple days and seeing what comes of it.
