    It actually installed the day I posted this... I'm not sure how, I didn't do anything, but it finally worked. The game downloaded while my machine was in sleep mode, but not when it was awake. Thanks for the help!

    Better go with this, it worked for me
    The Event Log reports “Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8024200D” which indicates there are two issues affecting Windows 8 updates from the Windows store.

    One workaround that appears to be working for some (and only do this if you are happy fiddling around behind the scenes) is to stop the Windows update service, rename the SoftwareDistribution folder, then restart the Windows update service (which downloads a new SoftwareDistribution folder. just copy and paste The commands below

    • Windows and X key then select Command Prompt (Admin)
    • net stop wuauserv
    • cd\windows
    • rename SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bck
    • net start wuauserv
