Hi Vincent,

I would like to inform you that if you are connected to the Internet using the proxy settings, the Windows 8 Apps cannot connect to the Internet and thus they do not work properly as expected. So, we need to check and disable the proxy settings in the computer if you need to download Windows 8.1 from Windows Store. Follow these steps to disable the proxy settings and check if it helps.

 

Follow the steps to disable proxy:

 

a.    Click the Gearbox at the top right corner in internet explorer.

b.    Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

c.    Click the Connections tab, and then click LAN settings.

d.    Uncheck the box next to “proxy server for your LAN”.

e.    Click OK to save and close the window.

 

There is no other alternate link other than Windows Store. You can refer to the following Microsoft article to know more about updating to Windows 8.1.

Hope this helps.

I also have the same issue, Our workplace uses win 8.1 behind a proxy, and all non-proxy traffic is blocked. This denies us use of the windows store and windows update, and makes in near impossible to install certain things like .NET framework 3.5. That last link offered does not allow such use.
