I have similar problems too - basic apps like mail, calender, skype, photos cannot be updated.  I have no problem when I just bought for a month or so but when it starts to receive updates from Windows, quite a number of basic apps cannot be updated - it says there are error code.  This is the first time I am buying an acer product and I am not confident in investing some more...

I am also having issues installing and updating apps in the windows store. Tried installing twitter, fb and adobe photo express..only adobe installed and all other apps gives me error code 0x8024001e. Tried sending acer support email just now so awaiting response. I am in Jamaica and was advised by a friend to go to device manager and change location settings but that did not help at all. Would really like this issue laptop is not even 3wks old.

Hi, I'm new here, and new to Windows-8.  Trying to upgrade my Aspire to 8.1.  Said to go to Windows Ap Store, then locate Upgrade Windows. Been all over the Ap Store, don't find Upgrade, or any way to search. ???

Have you tried going to Windows Updates, make sure you're fully up to date and then see if the app appears. An update is crucial to making the update available in their app store.

Windows-8 has me so all-thumbs I can't even find Windows Updates to be sure I'm cool with that.  Really missing simplicity (for me anyway) of the old layout.  BTW, is thee a click for Accept as Solution or do I just type that myself?  Tnx.

Re: Can't update windows 8 apps

Hi I am having the same problems, I bought the laptop yesterday and it has 92 important updates to do. It wont do the automatic updates. I have tried the help provided in the microsoft communities but no help at all. I cant get them to update. It just searches for updates and sits at 0%.


Without these I cant update to ver 8.1 please help !!!!
