My Lumia 535 is failing to download apps or even install them, instead it gives me an error code 805a0193. I have been trying for the past 2 days now. How can I fix this?

This appears to be a server-side issue, apparently many people are reporting the same error on both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1. Nothing to do but wait for it to be resolved.

  • I thought the servers have slowly been shut down.
