    Bad (NO) Free WIN 8.1 update download on Lenovo laptop

    I click on the free win 8.1 update, it starts to down load and the % completed updates(gets larger), but when I walk away and look again, it is down to 10%, 19% never saw it larger than 78%.
    I clicked on install and the periods cycle left to right on the screen and it comes back with error not installed.

    I have tried to update(8.1) for the last two months, NO luck. Have checked the downloads and never found a larger (>1 Gbyte) file. Microsoft update set to auto download, let me decide.

    Just installed 22 fixes yesterday, with the same error downloading WIN 8.1 this is why I like MAC!

    Try the Windows Update Troubleshooter

    NO free win 8.1 upadet

    All updates to win 8.0 are installed per windows update, four optional updates are not installed, I wait until Lenovo.
    says to update.

    I tried again to install the free WIN 8.1 update from the Windows store yesterday, Now it doesn't even pretend to download.

    This is why I love my MAC, They list the download, rather then hide behind a "Gates"-installer!!!

    I tried the troubleshooter b4, #1 Fix??!! Reinitialize your system (This is a fix?, maybe in windows but not other operating systems)..

    Thanks much for the help, I will try your suggestions.
