    Windows 8.1 Update from Windows 8


    I have Windows 8 Pro installed in my system, and I keep getting a notification asking me to upgrade to Windows 8.1. Whenever I click it, it opens the home of Windows store, and nothing else happens. I Googled for solution, they told that the I got to have two updats installed to achieve Win 8.1 upgrade, and those two are already installed!

    Any solutions?

    Thanks in advance!
