You should be able to right click and launch updates for the Metro apps. Mine are up to date so the option does not present itself on my system. You might also see if you can get into Store and do updates - your picture says Store is x is well.

Also try a full shut down of your computer (Windows 8 likes to suspend or hibernate), then start up and run Windows update.

If the problem is recent ( a few days) and you have a restore point when the problem didn't exist, you could do a system restore.  The preferred method is to boot up in safe mode with command prompt and type rstrui.exe to restore.  This may be the easiest solution if it works.
