Repair in Add/Remove Programs fixed no updates for me

I have MS Store version. I was stuck with 1.18.15.0 and couldn’t find a way to trigger MS Store to download updates. The 3 part zendesk Download & Installation issues troubleshooter didn’t fix the issue. XBOX app removed mandatory update issue, but didn’t trigger updates. Finally I decided to uninstall MSFS. Luckily I stumbled on a fix:

  1. Go to Add or Remove Programs
  2. Select MSFS
  3. Select Advanced Options
  4. Select Repair

After the repair I switced to MS Store and it was already downloading the latest update (I have auto-updates on)!
