First time getting Minecraft Java, if I try to open the launcher, it gives me this error:

Minecraft Launcher is currently not available in your account. Make sure you are signed in to the Store and try again. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001

I'm pretty sure I'm signed into the store already, but it keeps giving me this error when I try to open the installer or launcher.

Don't know if this will help but I also had this problem and spent like two hours trying to fix it. Anyway, the thing that fixed my issue was simply travelling to the Microsoft Store and clicking the "get" button next to the play "button." I think the problem I was having was that I had gotten Minecraft before merging my Java and Microsoft accounts. Because of this Microsoft never registered that I had bought Minecraft. The simple click made me feel stupid, but I can play Minecraft now.
