Is there anything else I can do to resolve this issue?

  • Edit your question, do not submit a comment, and supply the following information. Your Windows 10 build, you can determine this information, by using winver. We also need to know the edition of Windows 10 you are using. Have you used any applications to improve your privacy?

The current build is Windows 10 1709 (OS build 16299.201). I suggest you check and install all available Windows Updates to make your computer to the latest build.

Alternatively, you can upgrade to Windows 10 1709 via Media Creation Tool provided by Microsoft:

Afterwards, try downloading the app from Windows Store again.
