    Below is package 1 that failed to open:

    Failed to open package file: \\?\C:\Windows\Servicing\Packages\Package_1_for_KB2737084~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.2.1.0.mum [HRESULT = 0x80070002 - ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND]
    2014-04-03 20:16:26, Info CBS Package not in store, assuming not applicable: Package_1_for_KB2737084~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.2.1.0.

    It might have something to do with some of the pre installed apps, which I uninstalled a while back?

    I am wondering if this will cause any problem when I update to 8.1 update 1?

    Does anyone know what these packages are that failed to open and why are they not opening?

    Thanks
    try Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Windows 8.1 update 1


    @Mansome: That did the trick.

    I have now installed 8.1 update 1 and it went smoothly.

    The only problem I am getting is from 'Cuetools' which Avast is now saying has a virus and I can't open.

    I am sure it is a false positive.

    Hello Josef, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you can download an official Windows 8.1 ISO file using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Afterwards, you can use it to upgrade to 8.1 using OPTION TWO in the tutorial on the first page without losing anything.

    Let it sit for a while to see if it may continue.
