    Hiiii! @Sami Can Okatan, I'm Jamie I'm an insider also an Xbox ambassador. I'm here to help you. Please follow these steps and let me know how it goes after.

    Open cmd by searching "cmd" on the start menu, make sure to run it as administrator
    Execute this command on the command prompt

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Run these commands on the command prompt to restart windows update services

    net stop bits
    net stop cryptsvc
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop msiserver
    Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
    net start bits
    net start cryptsvc
    net start wuauserv
    net start msiserver

    After successfully executing the commands, I would perform a clean boot to disable third-party background services that may be interrupted with the windows update services but it's your choice.

    1. Go to start menu/search MSConfig
    2. On the system configuration window go to the services tab
    3. Tick on hiding all Microsoft service so that this won't be affected
    4. Choose to disable all services
    5. Next, go to the startup tab and on the window choose to open task manager
    6. Choose to disable each application from starting up when the computer is booting up
    7. Close task manager and hit apply then ok
    8. A prompt to restart the computer will show up, choose to restart

    This should restart the computer with minimal third-party services starting up right after windows boots up. Once the system boots up. After this, try to install the game again.

    In the event that it still fails, I would perform an in-place upgrade, this process overrides the system files which would fix corruptions or damages within the system files/packages while updating the system to the latest version of Windows 10 again, it's your choice.

    To perform an in-place upgrade,

    1. Open this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...
    2. Select Download tool, and select Run. You need to be an administrator to run this tool.
    3. On the License terms page, if you accept the license terms, select Accept.
    4. On What do you want to do? page, select Upgrade this PC now and then select Next.
    5. After downloading and installing, the tool will walk you through how to set up Windows 10 on your PC.
    6. When Windows 10 is ready to install, you'll have an option to keep your personal files and apps, keep personal files, or keep Nothing during the upgrade
    7. The process would take a while and may consist of multiple reboots. Make sure that there won't be interruption within the process to make sure that everything would sort everything out

    Thank you for taking your time to do these steps and I'm sorry you are having this problem.
