Intune Microsoft Store app changes
The Microsoft Store for Education will be retired soon. Microsoft Intune is removing support for the Microsoft Store for Education on June 15th, 2023.
To continue deploying Minecraft Education you need to switch to the new Microsoft Store app type in Intune. The new Microsoft Store app type is available in the Microsoft Intune admin console and the Intune for Education admin console.

You can see a demonstration of these steps on YouTube for the Intune admin console:
