    Can't install updates, or from the store (0x80073cf0)


    Hi!

    Recently I tried installing an app from the store (didn't use it before), I got an "0x80073cf0" for which no useful solutions exist on the net.

    After I tried updating windows. I'm on un-updated 8.1. This doesn't work either. I got "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer".
    Restoring the system lasted for hours...

    The two might be related, I can't be sure. Does anyone have some tips? Friggin windows already wasted several hours of my life because of these.
