    Can't update Windows 8.1 RTM to GA


    Hi! I have Windows 8.1 RTM installed on my computer. Some days ago, Microsoft released the GA updates for the system. Windows update downloaded them, but they failed to install... I've downloaded the updates manually and applied them in the correct order... But no luck, the updates fail to install

    Here's a photo of the updates... (in Spanish)

    Any idea of what can I do? Thanks!

    What was the full error message and number you got when they failed to install?

    If you have a 3rd party AV or firewall program installed, then temporarily disable or uninstall it to see if the updates will install afterwards.

    For KB2883200 you could try running this command, rebooting afterwards and then try to install the KB again.
    The command is:

    sc config http start= auto

    It will allow the HTTP Windows Service to work again, which it seems is a requirement to installing KB2883200.
