Task "GenerateAppxPackageRecipe" Failed unexpectedly

When I try to build my project the UWP project fails. I tried it on a coworkers's computer and builds fine. But not on mine.
I've seen people saying they solved by cleaning, deleting bin/obj and rebuilding and some say they ran updates. I've tried all those to no avail.
Some say they change which msbuild.exe the project was using but none say how they did this.. if thats the solution i'd like to know how I am supposed to do it. But somehow I doubt this is going to do the trick.

Heres the error I get :

The "GenerateAppxPackageRecipe" task failed unexpectedly.
