- 80188264, 80188265 -- Your phone is not set up to download updates and applications over the cellular network.
- 801882cb -- Your phone is having difficulties connecting to the network to fully download the application or update.
- 801881d0, 8018822a, 80072f30, 80072ee7, 80072ee2, 80072efd, 80072f76, 80072efe -- Your phone is suffering from a temporary server or internet connection issue.
- 80188d1, 80188d2 -- Your phone suffered from an error during the installation of the application or update.
For the first four types of error codes, you will need to make sure that you're connected to the proper network and that your phone has enough storage space. For the last one, you will need to make sure that your Microsoft account is set up properly. Then, restart your phone.
