Ensure that the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Update doesn’t reflect any of these values. These policies are meant for Windows Update for Business (WUf B). Windows Update for Business aka WUf B enables information technology administrators to keep the Windows 10 devices in their organization always up to date with the latest security defenses and Windows features by directly connecting these systems to Windows Update service.
Thus, consuming more bandwidth when downloading the store app updates.
We also recommend you to apply GPO for DO to use over LAN-in which case the clients will establish peer to peer connection and download already cached content.
As you figured out we didn’t recommend disabling the Store itself to prevent the store app updates download since it breaks the entire store and makes it inaccessible for the clients.
Also, if a machine has already queued for an app update, it doesn’t cancel the existing download.
