Automate the update of the UniFi Network Controller

I have to maintain a few UniFi Network Controllers, and I didn’t like to use the Web Frontend to update them. Especially because I have to use different versions for different installations. This is mostly based on the fact that for some, we have to use newer versions or even early access releases (they include fixes for issues).

Most of the installations are based on the UBNT UniFi Cloud Key (Gen 1 and Gen 2), or Debian. If you use another Linux distribution, you have to adopt it to fit your requirements.

Windows 10: Updates from Microsoft Store failed with 0x800706D9

Recently on two of my Windows 10 systems all updates from the Microsoft Store failed with Error 0x800706D9.

I had that issue back in 2017, back then it turned out that the Storage Service was turned off. And the same issue was the reason today.

After turning on the Storage Service (just execute services.msc as admin), the store applied the hanging updates without any issues. Manual as Startup Type is fine.

I have no idea what turned off the Storage Service!
