    I had to same problem with a Dell laptop. Called Tech support they ended up downloading the update to my system for installation. They claim it is a know issue.

    If you have a W8 ISO or a DVD you do not need to use the Windows Store.
    Set your Bios to boot from your DVD....restart with your DVD inserted.
    Then do a clean installation...during the install you get the choice of installing either W8 or W8.1.

    DO BE AWARE THE CHOICE BETWEEN W8 AND W8.1 MUST BE TAKEN QUICKLY AS IT ONLY APPEARS ON SCREEN FOR A VERY SHORT TIME.

    One more attempt at helping.

    I apologize in advance if the information is useless.
    Just trying to help.

    At this link:

    Upgrade Assistant: FAQ - Microsoft Windows Help

    did you try the 8.1 upgrade assistant ?
    A picture:

    Click image for larger version

    I just tried it & it said 8.1 was already installed.(True)

    It might give you a useful message if you have not already tried it.

    EDIT--- Unblock the download:
