Can anyone suggest any work around?


Reset your apps (as well as replace missing / corrupt / obsolete entries from the component store)


Start Powershell -> Start Menu -> Run -> taskmgr -> File -> Run new Task -> %SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -> Select "Create this task with administrative privileges." -> Click OK.

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope LocalMachine -Force
./sc config EventLog start=auto;./sc config UsoSvc start=auto;./sc config wuauserv start=auto;./net start EventLog;./net start UsoSvc;./net start wuauserv;
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"};
Get-AppxPackage | Reset-AppxPackage;
DISM /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth;
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase;
This did not solve it for me
