    Method 1:
    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard, select Command prompt (admin).

    • Enter the below commands one by one and hit Enter key.

      PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
    • It will turn the command prompt into a PowerShell window.

    • Now cut and paste the following command below and hit Enter key.

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    • Reboot and the issues should be resolved
    If the issue still persist, follow the below method.

    Method 2:
    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type Powershell
    • Type the following in the Powershell prompt:
      $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
    • Close the Powershell window
    • Reboot the computer and check if it helps.
    Source.
