How to fix KDE store not working on Zorin OS 16.1

Hi. I have an issue with the KDE Store on Zorin 16.1 where the KDE Store keeps giving me a timeout message when I try to install ANYTHING!!! Can anyone help me please?

Are you referring to the Software store that comes pre-installed with Zorin OS?

Or, did you install the KDE desktop on Zorin OS?
