whitelisting

Windows 10 Store app updates being blocked.

Had to change my DNS to get them to load. Received error with msftncsi.com whitelisted.

Is this new? Never had this issue before.

The blocklists are subject to change at any time. We don’t actually control what’s on them, we aggregate a list of them from around the web.

It could either be down to a change in the way that microsoft store works, or an overzealous list curator adding one too many microsoft domains because “MICRO$HIT IS EVIL”, or any number of reasons!

Whitelisting those two domains will solve your issues, though.

I found this thread only after posting on the microsoft website asking for help. I didn’t realize at first that is was related to pi-hole.

Might be helpful to someone else that went through what I went through.
