“Sorry, we can’t change your Microsoft account right now“ error occurs when you try to change your Microsoft account information

Problem

You get the following error message when you try to change your Microsoft account information:

Sorry, we can’t change your Microsoft account right now

This might mean that it’s been less than 30 days since you made your last account change. You can make only one Microsoft account change for any Xbox Live gamertag every 30 days.

Note You also must wait 30 days after your gamertag is downloaded from Xbox Live before you can switch that gamertag to a different Microsoft account.

Solution

Try your Microsoft account change again after 30 days have passed.

Once 30 days have passed since the last account change, you will again be able to update your Microsoft account.
