Windows 8.1 Update not available in the Windows Store

If you are facing an issue where you cannot find the Windows 8.1 update in the Windows Store, it can be for several reasons

  1. You might be running an edition of Windows 8 that doesn’t support the free update from the Store
            • Some editions of Windows 8 don’t support the free update to Windows 8.1. These include:
                  • Windows 8 Enterprise
                  • Editions of Windows 8 Pro that are installed by enterprises using KMS activation
                  • Editions of Windows 8 that are installed using an MSDN ISO, and activated using multiple activation keys
                  • If you’re running one of these editions, you can’t install the free update to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 from the Store.
                  • If you installed Windows 8 using an MSDN ISO, you might be able to install Windows 8.1 using a similar ISO from MSDN.
  1. Windows is not up to date
