I have a UWP app that we have been using for over a year and I pushed an update yesterday to it and I started getting the following error:

Can you file a feedback hub item under Developer Platform > App Deployment and message me the link?  If you have a external site I can reproduce the issue that would help.

@chris-evans Did you find a solution for this ? I am facing the same issue 

Unfortunately I don't remember what the fix was, but I think it was related to a network or certificate error.
