    I had this same problem today.

    easiest workaround I've found, is to uninstall the apps, make sure you mark down somehow what you own.. you'll need this list..

    reboot the computer, load the app store, download the apps again.

    it should download the app with no problem.

    load the app as you would normally and have a nice day.

    In addition to what xraiderv1 suggested, you could try installing one by one (un-tick the rest leaving only one ticked).

    in my case, doing things one by one didnt really work all that well, so I had to use the uninstall/redownload method, but as brummyfan suggested.. it may or may not work, depending on your own unique circumstances.

    of course it could be high server demand.. cause I just updated all my games apps, and both news and weather apps.

Store: update notifications for uninstalled Apps? in Windows Updates & Activation
For the last month or so, Windows Store now reports available updates for applications I have uninstalled, like Sports and Finance. This did not happen in the past. Does the same happen for you, too? Is it a problem, or a devious and annoying way to trick us into reinstalling these Windows 8 apps?
Hi It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this? Thanks Bye
