How to Solve Minecraft Error Code 0x80004005: Eroded Badlands

There are multiple methods you can try applying on your Minecraft installation to attempt to resolve the Minecraft Error Code 0x80004005: Eroded Badlands. Let’s go through them step by step.

First things first, we need to check if Minecraft is down. The Error Code 0x80004005: Eroded Badlands can be caused by Minecraft being down. Please check the Downdetector Minecraft page. If many players are putting in their reports in the past hour or so, it probably indicates that there is a problem that’s out of your hands. Also, there’s an unofficial Minecraft server status page that tracks server issues. If the game is up and running, it means the problem is on your end most probably.

On the official Microsoft page, you can download the Gaming Services Repair Tool. Please find the “Downloadable Version” on the page.

After running the tool, run the PowerShell in your Windows (you can search for it in the Start menu) by right-clicking it and pressing the “Run as Administrator” button. Paste the following command, hit Enter, and when the command is done, restart your PC

get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers

You can also try to repair Minecraft from the Xbox launcher by pressing the three-dot menu and clicking on the cogwheel icon (Manage). Under Files, you should go to the Verify and Repair option. This will check if any of your local files in Minecraft have been corrupted.

You can also try to update Java manually from Java’s official download page.

If all else fails, you will probably need to uninstall Minecraft completely and start fresh.
