Some Windows 10 users who have not been able to update or download apps from the Windows Store can do so once again. Microsoft has apparently fixed the problem that has plagued a subset of Windows 10 PC owners for as long as a week.

ZDNet reports that the problems were fixed through unknown means. Microsoft did release a patch earlier this week for Windows 10 but the Windows Store problems persisted until earlier today. It's possible that Microsoft fixed the issue via server-side updates to the Windows Store. Users who have been experiencing this issue are advised to restart their PC and open the Windows Store. The app download queue should clear after a few minutes and then downloads of apps should be working again.
