    Why can't I find the update in the Store?

    Why can't I find the update in the Store?

    2 possible reasons are listed in the article:

    1) Your PC needs another update, KB 2871839, After checking for this update and not seeing it I still received the 8.1 update via Windows store anyway & downloading now.

    2)Some editions of Windows 8 don’t support the free update to Windows 8.1.

    Run wsreset.exe and try reopening the store.
