    Hello again. Tutorials below. Make sure you have that certain update to be able for it to show in your Store app.

    Upgrade Install to Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

    If you want to fresh install from ISO:

    Does it meet these?

    System requirements - Microsoft Windows

    If so, it doesn't say anything about"other reason"?

    Is it activated? Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    Maybe it's some OEM restriction.

    MS has played a lot with Windows 8.1 setup (I'm not sure about upgrade files) and for many OEMs it is now impossible to install Win 8.1 with BIOS-embedded key. One has to use the trick with generic key and change it after installation. However, I have no idea whether such restriction applies to Store-based update...

    It would be nice if you could provide contents of the message you're receiving and/or the error code.

    The simplest but no the most convenient solution would be downloading Win 8.1 ISO and installing it from the scratch.

    No idea unfortunately...

    However I can't believe there's such a thing as "Update 0" - it may be some wrongly composed error message. Are you sure it is not just Visual Studio Express without any updates? Just guessing as the original phrase sounds odd...

    I guess you used a disk with Win 8.1 set up - am I correct? How about trying a regular update via MS Store?
