    Win 8.1 Update (1) Not Installed on 1 computer (out of 3)


    2 of my machines have automatically downloaded/upgraded using the recent Win 8.1 Upgrade 1, but one machine is still running the pre upgrade 8.1. I've attempted to explicitly install the upgrade via

    Settings|Change PC Settings|Update & Recovery|Windows Update,

    but none of the expected updates show up: KB 2919355, KB 2919442. I've searched my update history and neither of these has been installed. So, what's up? Is there another prerequisite update I need before the actual 8.1 update will show up in my list of available updates?

    Hello Cohagan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Have you already installed all other available Windows Updates? Double check through Control Panel -> Windows Updates instead to see if they may show there.

    Yes, I currently have no pending updates (per Control Panel Windows Update applet.) Visually searching my update history I find that 2919442 was installed on 4/12, but since then none of the 8.1 Update files appear to have been installed. I found a blog posting that lists the updates that can be manually installed, but would much prefer an auto install. It troubles me that the other updates aren't listed when I check on Windows Update -- as though there's some other prerequisite required on my machine?

    Just to verify, do you have a power button on your Start screen like below? If so, then you are running Windows 8.1 Update.

    If not, then see if this may help for now.

    No I do not have the power or search icon on the start page and the 8.1 update has not been installed. I guess I'll have to install it manually, but I'm still concerned that the necessary updates don't show up automatically in Windows Update.
