Can't install game (from Windows Store/Xbox App)

I recently switched from Windows 10 to Windows 11. I did a fresh install from a USB drive, not an "upgrade" install, but I just let Windows Setup shove the previous OS files into C:\Windows.old\ rather than formatting the drive.

When trying to reinstall Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (purchased and originally installed from the Windows Store, installation now handled via the Xbox App), I get an error (code 0x80073cf3). I've tried both the Windows Store and Windows Update troubleshooters, as well as sfc /scannow, to no effect.

Any ideas?
