Why is Xbox not letting me join a party?
If you have any network issues, or NAT-type issues, you cannot join a party until you fix them. You need to check if the Xbox server status is working fine, make sure your internet connection is good, and turn on UPnP to fix the NAT-type issues. Once you have fixed them you can join a party or multiplayer game without any errors.
What do you do when your Xbox party keeps saying error?
You need to check the status of your internet connection, Xbox server, and NAT Type in the Network settings of the Xbox console and turn UPnP on if there are any issues with the NAT type. If none of them worked, you need to open Xbox recommended ports using the Port-forwarding option on the router or reset the router to factory default settings.
