Microsoft fixes Windows Phone Store error 80070020 for Windows Phone 8.1 users

March 6, 2018

Two days ago, we reported that Microsoft’s Windows Phone Store suffered from an error which prevented users from downloading apps from the Store. The error message would tell users “There is a problem completing your request. Please try again later. Error code: 80070020”.

This could be fixed by changing the time on your phone but was otherwise concerning to users of the operating system.

It turns out that Microsoft had forgotten to renew the SSL server certificate, resulting in the backend issues for the store.The firm has now done so, fixing the issue.

If you’re a Windows Phone 8.1 owner, you should now be able to download and update your apps, as usual, assuming you haven’t updated to Windows 10 yet.
