    Greetings,

    I am getting an "80073cf6" error on my HTC 8X running 8.1 on VZW when I try to update just about any app.

    This error is something new that came along with 8.1. A few days ago it was just one or two, now it's every single app that attempts to update. They download, get to the install portion of the update, and never finish, going to an "attention required" status with that error code. I have attempted numerous fixes to include turning the phone off and on, updating on cellular signal only, and uninstalling the app and attempting to reinstall from the store (tip- don't do this, you won't get the app back).

    Occasionally powering off and on will allow an app or two to correctly update, but by and large most apps sit there in the "attention needed" section and won't update.

    A search for "80073cf6" yielded a lot of threads on this and Microsoft's support threads, but I could not locate a fix. This is beyond frustrating!

    Technical info- OS version 8.10.14203.306, firmware revision 3030.0.52009.605

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm having this same exact problem on my 1520. I have 21 apps that haven't been able to update and the number is growing everyday. I'm about to give up n just go Android

    Try a soft reset and see if they then potter through.
