    Is your Windows 8 a retail version, or,MSDN/TechNet ?

    I really don't know what that means... It came pre-installed when I purchased my machine

    Or maybe its kms activated. I really don't know... Is it even legal? Because I didn't bother as long as it's working.

    Click image for larger version

    Okay.. So I used Windows 8.1 Update Assistant... all my apps were compatible but the main part, It says in the end that "Windows 8.1 can't be downloaded from here" "But you can download it from the Windows Store" and when I click 'Go to Store', It takes me to store with no tile for windows 8.1.

    So, anything else I can do?

    Hi there
    there have been a few issues on this topic -- there are some updates to W8 you need to have installed before the update will work.

    Don't give up, I have updated three pc's from 8 to 8.1 and each time I had difficulty finding the site which had the actual download.

    Although I think you do need to be up to date, the main update mentioned (KB2871389) isn't downloaded by Windows 8.1 Preview.

    Theog even tried installing it manually here and it wouldn't work in 8.1 Preview; it's only for 8.

    I installed KB 2871389 update but still couldn't find the windows 8.1 in store.
    As I said, I've installed all updates available for my pc but still i don't get windows 8 .1 update in store.
    Is there any other way i could get it?
