Why All of my Windows 10 App not working. Error message: This App can't Open


From today morning all of my Apps in my Windows 10 PC stopped working. All of the Apps showing similar error as below

Why could have been corrupted all of my Windows 10 Apps?. I am not able to open anything like Photos, calc, Microsoft store, mail etc.,

I tried to restart my PC two times but not helpful. What should I do to regain all of my Apps back?
