    Hi Tom,

    Our developers are working with Microsoft on this issue. We do not know the root cause of this error as of yet, but hopefully we can determine it soon and get it fixed for good. Thanks a lot for posting your concern and your patience.

    Never have got a answer yet, but I think it is Microsoft's Store causing the problem, on certain phones.

    I think I've fixed it. A long time ago, I downloaded PicsArt. The download got messed up, and I couldn't resume or retry. Then, I changed my SD card, Installed it, and moved it back. It worked!! U all should try it.

    Okay, I have been having an issue here and there with apps. I've tried other fixes. This isn't with all apps, but certain ones. For example I can't download Castle Clash at all. I have the space, but it gets so far then stays on Pending forever and refuses to go further. This update for PicsArt has been doing the same thing. And I don't think the thing about the SD Card is a fix cause my apps go to my card already, and that isn't helping. This error code(80073cfb) keeps showing up.

    I also notice that some things, like the new Tomb Raider Relic Run game or whatever, isn't even in the store result list though it'll show up in the search bar like it should be. What is going on? How do I fix this?

    Amazing no one has a answer for what error code 80073cfb means or is indicating, Sorta like Humpty Dumpy all of the kings horses or men can't put him together again.

    A simple answer would satisfy most of us I think. And NO you should not have to hard reset your phone either.

    Please Microsoft I beg you to tell us what error code 80073cfb stands for, surely there's a list of error code meanings in a manual somewhere.

    I have posted my question on Microsoft communities, "what does error code 80073cfb mean or is indicating" get answers for work around the broken system but never a answer to what error code 80073cfb is, I think we will discover a unicorn first.

    I got around it by clicking on the "response notes" and reading that and then continuing. It seem that they just want you to know of an apps potential for danger. I'm not sure, but it works.

    Teresa Gardner, that doesn't make sense though cause if that was the case it would do this with every single app or app update, and that isn't the case. I think what happened for you was more a getting lucky thing than an actual fix.
