When an MSIX app is deployed, if you right click on the start menu icon for a published app, you can select More-->App Settings.  This does nothing.

Is this happening with all apps or just a specific one?  Does it work for an app that was already on the device like Photos?  Which OS Build number is this?  Can you file a feedback hub item on this as well.

Consider non-reproducible.

 

A reboot of the OS solved the issue.  I believe that this was a general RS5 insider instability effect, and unrelated to MSIX except that it was my only reason to be using the build. 

Thanks for the follow up Tim.
