Microsoft's News App in Windows 10

Microsoft's News App in Windows 10 has started providing the message "An error occurred." The supplied Refresh link does not work either. Restarting the computer also did not work.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

My move.

I deleted it along with many other apps since these are pretty trashy.

That aside, I found our ISP's choice of DNS to be beyond bad. Try a google DNS (google "How do I use the Google DNS.")

I had same problem until I accidentally stumbled on solution. Turn off your network connection. Start the news app and it should direct you to the data choices. Turn the network back on and it should work.
