Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

First if all, lets run the Windows apps troubleshooter and check.


By default, Windows Update service is set to start automatically. But if you have changed some settings, you could reset Windows Update setting back to its default via the Control Panel or carry out the following steps:

1. Press Windows Key + R , type services.msc in the Run dialog box. Click OK.

2. From the Services window, look for Windows Update service, since you’re facing the issue, it may have Disabled or Manual Startup type.

For reference, you may also refer this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_store/windows-10-store-problems/f5d055c0-c83b-463c-b055-a45140f8a94e
