    - Check if you have wifi on, some apps can't be downloaded without wifi.
    - Check if there are not other apps downloading an update.

    Try to use to a different Wi-Fi connection. Maybe it's just the internet connection.

    Things you guys can try that have fixed it for me.

    Try rebooting the device and try again.

    Try turning off/on the WIFI.

    Cancel all updates, reboot the device and try installing them again.

    I fixed this by switching off automatic update of date and time. Phone returned to normal operation immediately. This may be a bug with WP dealing with daylight saving time changed.

    I fixed this by disallowing several apps from running in the background.

    spent more than 30 minutes today on phone to Windows Mobile support trying to sort this problem - no success. Tried setting date time to manual; then a phone reset/restart and it started updating all 6 pending apps, fixed in just a few minutes.

    Thanks for all above efforts but all of them didn't help I fix this with soft reset by holding the power button with volume down for 10 sec the phone will restart and I can download the apps that pending before.

    Do you have a laptop (windows 8.1)? If so, launch the windows store app via start menu, once open go to bottom right( the charm should appear - click on settings and go to account. Check is the email address the same as the one on your new mobile? If not, do it and save. Close the store app on the laptop, and switch your phone off/on. Hope it works for you.

    Hi i am using Nokia 730 and i tried your method but it did not work for me gave me error message We're having trouble connecting to the store at the moment. Try again in a little while. But if i open the store with 3G data on i can access the store and download all the apps. It does not allow me to download apps over wifi. Kindly check and update thanks.

    Hi,
    I`ve fought with this issue for weeks and tried virtually all of the"above" suggestions to no avail. I ended up re-setting my phone to factory settings, sacrificing my existing data, contacts, photo`s etc. My apps down-loaded successfully, before they would always be stuck on pending.
    My phone is Nokia 930. I hope this helps someone with similar problem.
    cheers, Manfred.
