This is the error message you may receive! Error 0x8024600e however states the same error description as 0x80073cf9, but requires different treatment. In this article, I’ll tell you the way to fix it. To fix this error I tried some of the casual fixes like deleting my Microsoft account, creating a new one, renaming the Software Distribution directory, creating AUInstall and AUInstallAgent directories, trying System File Checker, and refreshed Windows installation – which by the way uninstalled all my programs – but nothing worked.
Before you begin, run Windows Update Troubleshooter and the Windows Store apps Troubleshooter and see if that works for you. If it does not, then you may need to open the Registry Editor, and check the registry key missing which handles the Temporary Internet Files directory. If missing, you need to restore the missing key as explained below.
Fix Microsoft Store Error Code 0x8024600e
1. Press Windows Key + R combination, type put Regedt32.exe in Run dialog box, and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to this registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
3. In the right pane of this location, look for the string named Cache. Double click on it in order to modify it, you’ll got this:
4. In the above box, put the Value data as:

After inputting the default Value data, click OK. Reboot and your problem should be fixed hopefully.
