Hello,

I've got updated to Win 11 (release [not dev, not insider program!], 21H2 build 22000.194), and after a few minutes discovered that literally all ms-store apps (MS todo, Weather etc) have stopped working.

They show different error IDs, but the main idea of these errors is, "You'll need the Internet for this".

But obviously Internet is up and running! But they can't restore syncing with my MS account while saying "There's no Internet, we can't sync". MS To-do, e.g., says, "Sign in to sync account".

I checked network settings, there's Direct Connection. No VPNs, no custom DNS, no proxies whatsoever.

Any ideas how this could be fixed? Really urgent issue, help needed.

---

UPD: official MS support just said that Oct 5th release is not a release, and ACTUAL release will only be available in December. But winver says I'm using the release version, not the Insider Preview one.
