Microsoft has developed and owns the Xbox video game brand. The Xbox brand includes five video game consoles, as well as software (games), streaming services, an online service called Xbox Live, and a production arm called Xbox Game Studios. The brand was first introduced in the United States in November 2001, with the launch of the original Xbox console. Although Xbox is being played all over the world, it has some errors and bugs.

The original Xbox was released in North America on November 15, 2001. In Japan, it was released on February 22, 2002, and in Australia and Europe on March 14, 2002. It was the company’s first foray into the gaming console business.
In November 2005, Microsoft launched the Xbox 360 as the successor to the original Xbox, competing with Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Nintendo’s Wii as part of the seventh generation of video game consoles.
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are part of the fourth generation of Xbox models, which will be released on November 10, 2020. Both, along with the PlayStation 5, are considered part of the ninth generation of video game consoles. This is the latest video gaming console.

Method 1 Change DNS Settings
A glitched DNS can trigger this error in Xbox. Here is how you change the DNS settings:
From the main Xbox One menu, move to Settings and then go to Network in Advanced Settings.
Then go to DNS settings and select Manual from the list of available options.
When you move to the next screen, enter 184.108.40.206 in the box associated with the Primary DNS and 220.127.116.11 in the Secondary DNS box.
Once the default DNS addresses have been changed, restart your console.

Method 2 Power Cycle your Console
In most cases, errors can be resolved by a simple power cycle of the console.
Turn on the console, press, and hold the Xbox button for 10 seconds. Keep it pressed until the LED stops flashing.
Once the power is cut off completely, press the power button once again to start your Xbox console once again.
If you see the green animation appearing at the next startup sequence, it means that the power-cycling procedure was successful.
Once the startup sequence is complete, try to repeat the action that was previously causing the error and see if the issue is now resolved.
