Disable Third Party Firewall Software
In case, you’re using any third-party Firewall or security program, then I recommend you must disable it. Most of the users reported that they fixed that same issue by turning off the third party firewall software. You can also try this solution if above method didn’t work for you.
Also, don’t forget to enable the firewall software once the job is done.
Change your Internet Connection

In Windows 10 creators update, Microsoft has a separate page in the Settings app where you will find out different troubleshooter to fix problems related to different components of Windows 10.

The Internet Connection troubleshooter will fix any problems related to an internet connection, while Windows Store apps will fix Windows Store related problems.
