    Click 8.1 upgrade in Store does nothing


    Hi all,
    I have refreshed my windows 8, and now trying to install 8.1 I have installed all the recommended updates, but when i open the store an click on the 'Update to Windows 8.1 for free' , nothing happens. the icons gets the click, since it animates, but i don't see any options to download or do anything ?

    Any help welcome.

    is there an alternative way to install 8.1 over 8.0

    Cheers

    You might try clearing the Windows Store cache.

    Thanks Guys.
    Problem was updates.

    I had installed all the updates from the control panel updater.
    But when i ran the PC settings updates there were more. When i completed those updates, the 8.1 installer gave me the download option. I'm currently downloading 8.1 as we speak.

    Thanks for all the quick replies. Problem solved. !

For some of us with a slow/unreliable internet connection the upgrade may be a real hurdle. Any Idea of the size of the upgrade? Best guess? Might be wise waiting for an ISO file I think, rather than risk the store method.
