Same problem here.  Trying to install remotely to a laptop (before I do my desktop) and this is scaring me.

I was having the same problem. I tried multiple times and no luck. I went to windows update and installed all of the updates that were listed, then went back to the App Store and tried the update and finally it worked.

All Windows 8 updates must be installed or the 8.1 will not.

When I go to "Windows Update" there are no updates listed. I checked a couple of times and it says I'm up to date.

I'm on 64 bit professional as well. I installed Windows 7 from CD to my hard drive, and then upgraded to Windows 8 from CD last October.

Windows update reports that there are no important updates.

However the windows update from control panel had two optional updates - one on Win 8 Pro and the other on bing bar.

Will try updating those now.

Meanwhile, tried a couple of reboots - still failed just about at 50% - and it is very slow to download!

fingers crossed now on the optional updates..
