    Hello I am running windows 8 pro x64 and when I go into windows store I don't see the update. I have tried updating my system and I have the update KB 2871389 or I think so cuz it does not show up in the windows update for installation and I tried wsreset.exe and it wont work either! Help!!

    Now none of those links helped me and I just downloaded KB 2871389 individually and it said I already had it. So like is there anyway else to get the update?

    Did you already try everything in the yellow Tip box previously?

    You couldn't of had time to do all of it, if you just now did them.

    Double check this one again:

    Update is available that enables a notification to be displayed that helps you update Windows 8 or Windows RT to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1

    In that case, you might consider to refresh or reset Windows 8 to start over, and try installing the Windows Updates to hopefully be able to update to Windows 8.1 afterwards.

    You could try opening RUN-(Win key+R) and typing-- wsreset.exe -- & click ok.

    This should update everything in the store.

    It might help.
    or not.
