    15 Updates from Metro tiles not updating


    They are all updates from the Metro menu default apps, thinks like games, videos, etc. I have been trying to update them for 8 hours now. I gat start to fill green at a very patetic rate, then one by one they time out and and it gives me the option to try again The .non moving installation bars are driving me nuts especially after 8 hours of trying.

    Is anyone else getting these update messages, and experiencing the same frustrating experience?

    Hi Motely. Glitches in new OSs can stretch our patients for sure. Try www.eightforums.com/showthread.php?t=3047. Sometimes it takes a couple of scans.

    Hope that helps.
