    I've seen the Windows 8.1 update advertised in the Windows Store on a laptop with Media Center installed; so it does work in some cases.

    Hmm, okay. All my friends with Media Center on their PC didn't see the automatic download in the store. So, that's why I thought this could be it. We all had a free MC key from Microsoft. Could it be this? Maybe... ?

    Mine was a free MC key too - I upgraded the PC during the time when that offer was on.

    Despite installing all updates the 8.1 upgrade would not appear in the apps store. I downloaded the relevant update manually using the link Anish Mehta provided above. That worked as the upgrade then appeared in the app store. The upgrade installed successfully but a word of warning: it takes about two hours so don't run it too late at night as I did.
