I am trying to update newly installed Win. 8 so I can install Win 8.1. Up[grade will not

take, upon rebooting it has a failure to update and reverting changes(takes forever). I

have had this problem before and usually doing a "troubleshoot updates" and a clean boot

worked, even did a sfc/scannow. Nothing seems to work.Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Go to your Windows updates history and find out which update or updates have been failing; start a new Updates session, but this time look for those updates and exclude them from the list.
Change (for now) how updates are installed, choose to prompt every time.
After the other updates have been installed, go to the MS support site and look for those troublesome updates, then download and install them one at the time. Research on line using the kb number those that still do not install and see if you can find a solution.
