How to solve windows apps stuck on updating.

After I just finished installation Windows 10, I ran a windows update command and windows store apps. The windows calculator was only one app that could not update properly. In start menu, the app displayed as gray progression bar under its icon and it could not run. I tried to run the windows store and update the app again but noting change.

I found that the “Windows powershell” can uninstall the app by following command line.
   Get-AppxPackage *windowscalculator* | Remove-AppxPackage
Finally, I must reinstall the app again from windows store and its working properly.
