How to fix Microsoft Store, or Windows Update Error 0x80D05001 on Windows 10
Utilize the built-in Windows Troubleshooter
Microsoft has quickly learnt that there are issues with their software, and do have a built-in troubleshooting tool that you can use to fix a whole range of issues, including that of system files, and even Microsoft Store issues. To use the built-in Windows Troubleshooter, follow the below steps.
- Go to “Settings”. (You can also use Windows Key + I (i))
- Click into the “Updates and Security” section, then click “Troubleshooting”.
- Click “Windows Store Apps” and select “Run Troubleshooter”.
- This will open up the troubleshooting, and will run. This can take anywhere from 30 seconds, to 30 minutes.
- Once completed, we reccomend you restart your computer to see if this fixes the issues.
If this does not help you, then move on to the next step to see if it will help you.
Run a SFC Scan on your PC
If you’ve run the built-in troubleshooter with no luck, then we will try to run another troubleshooting method that is a little more hidden on Windows. To run an SFC scan (a full system scan for issues), simply follow the below steps.
- Open the CMD. (Windows Key + R, then type in “CMD” – or search for “Command Prompt”). If possible, right click and run this “Run as Administrator”.
- Once the black screen has opened, enter the following code: sfc /scannow
- This should then start a process or scanning your PC. This can take quite a bit of time, so would reccomend grabbing a drink before it finishes.
- It should then, once complete – tell you if there are any issues. Regardless, after this has completed, restart your PC and try the Microsoft Store issue again.
If this still fails to fix your issue, move on to the next troubleshooting method.
Temporarily Disable Firewall & Anti-Virus
Although we would neve recommend disabling anti-virus, and or firewalls – this may be the issue you’re facing when trying to use the Microsoft store. Because of this, if you don’t know what anti-virus or firewall you’re using – simply search in the Search bar “Firewall” or “Defender”, and once open – hit “Disable”.
Once done, try Windows Store again to see if this helps.
Reset the Microsoft Store & Service
A very quick, and quite often last-resort fix is to reset the Microsoft Store and Services attached to it. This is super simple to do, and will only take 30 seconds to try. To reset the Microsoft store, simply follow the below steps.
- Go to Search, type “WSReset“, and click on WSReset.exe.
- Once this has completed, simpy close the window and restart your device. #
This should then fix your issue once and for all.
