How to Fix Windows Store 0x80048839 Error Code?

I tried to update apps in Windows Store, but the error 0x80048839 kept appearing. Rebooted the PC, but it didn’t help, rebooted the router – didn’t help either. By the way, the same code shows up when I download apps. What can be done? There is nothing on the web about this error! Literally nothing!


0x80048839 is an extremely rare error for the Microsoft Store. It’s hard to recommend anything on how to fix it, given the frequency in which it occurs, but you’ll probably be able to get rid of it by doing the following:

  • re-enter your Microsoft account;
  • completely reset the Store application (WIN+R→wsreset.exe);
  • re-register the Windows Store.

Regarding the latter:

  • press WIN+S and type PowerShell query;
  • right-click on the found result and select Run as administrator;
  • run the following command in the console:
    • Get-AppXPackage *WindowsStore* -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
  • close PowerShell and reboot the PC.

The 0x80048839 error should disappear once you’ve done one of the above steps.
