    Very common problem but with many possible solutions, some of which are covered in the link below. It seems that 3G connection and using a proxy can cause this problem. If you look to the right in the link below there are more links to the same problem.

    The problem is solved. If you have this problem upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1 in store. Nothing else worked for me.
