How to fix Minecraft error 0x803f8001 on PC

Most of the issues that cause error 0x803f8001 stem from issues with the Microsoft Store rather than the Minecraft application itself. Here's how you can fix it.

Uninstall and Reinstall Minecraft

If your problem is with updating Minecraft, then uninstalling and reinstalling it as the latest version may be a workaround to the error.

Clear Microsoft Store cache

To clear your Microsoft Store cache, press the Windows Key + R, and enter wsreset.exe into the command box. Once done, restart the store and try again.

Re-register the Microsoft Store App

If clearing the cache doesn't work, the problem may be with the Microsoft Store recognising your device. To fix this, open Microsoft PowerShell and choose to Run as Administrator.

Once in the PowerShell application, input the following command and then try to update or use Minecraft again:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

How to fix Minecraft error 0x803f8001 on Xbox

Here are some fixes you can try if you get this error on your Xbox One.

Log out of your Xbox Account and restart your Xbox

It sounds like a simple solution, but sometimes just logging out and doing a full reboot of your console can kickstart the Xbox into recognising that you own and can play the game.

Make sure that the Xbox Account you are signed into is the one that purchased and owns Minecraft, rather than using a different account on the same console.

Make your Xbox the home console

If you didn't buy Minecraft on your account, there is a workaround.

If you have access to or know the person who bought Minecraft, they can make your Xbox One the home console of their account, as this allows your account to share the games they bought or downloaded onto your console.

To set your Xbox as the home console, follow these steps:

  • Open the Xbox Settings
  • Go to All Settings > Personalisation
  • Select My Home Console and then Make this my home Xbox

If you want to remove an Xbox from your account, you can follow the same steps but instead click on This is not my home Xbox.
