    Why don't I get a Windows 8.1 Update in store?


    Okay now, today is October 18th and I've not got a Windows 8.1 update in store yet. I've Installed all the updates that were available for windows, restarted my PC several times but I still don't get it. What could be the reason and how do I get it?

    Have you checked with any of your friends locally to see if they have the update in the MS store? If not, then it's a problem with your country. If your friends, locally, have it then it could be any number of things....internet blockage, a data cap from your ISP, your computer and it goes on.

    Is there something specifically from MS about your Country as to what version of the OS you get to install?

    I don't think that's the case because on Microsoft website, I see that Windows 8.1 is available for download in INDIA where I live. So, it should be there... But it's not there!
    Also, there are friends who have Windows 8 and they got the update yesterday itself. But also there is no Internet blockage I guess as I can use other internet services normally.

    So... Any solution to this? Because I don't want to do a clean install and moreover, I don't want to pay for it again!

    Try this... (couldn't verify yet)

    "Make sure your PC is tied to your account. When you sign in with a Microsoft account, the PC is tied to your account for sync purposes. If the PC you're trying to upgrade isn't tied to your account, you won't see the Upgrade option in Windows Store."

    What happens if you try this...?

    Use the Upgrade Assistant and run it. This is the UK site; you may need to change it to the equivalent for your country.
    Upgrade Assistant: FAQ - Microsoft Windows Help

    If you're lucky, the Upgrade Assistant will say you can't buy it but download it from the Store, at which point I think it will show you a "Go to the store" link which will take you to the correct Windows Store page.

    Any luck, SD?
    I had a similar problem earlier today with the store offering only the 8.1 Preview. Store now corrected.
    Maybe India's throttled for the time being, what with a billion potential customers threatening to swamp the servers, along with the rest of the world.

    I can't agree with JOD and a necessary link to an account. I've avoided any email addresses with 8.x so far and I managed the 8.1 update.
    BTW, there's a Youtube video on 8.1 appearing to force us to sign on to a Microsoft account to use 8.1. Not so, and you don't have to fake an address, either.

    @JOD I'm logged in with my Microsoft account already but still don't see the update...
    And @DavidY I'll try running upgrade assistant when I get back home... And let you all know...
