    8.0 will not update to 8.1 ?

    Good day all, I have tried 3 times now to install the 8.1 update but to no effect.
    It goes through the installation sequence and then hangs on "your account" "confirm your local password" I type in my password and it just hangs there. I had to cancel and then it restored win 8. I saw an article that said you had to log in with your MS account,tried that and the same happened. Saw in the forum about the scannow trick and tried that and then tried the update again,exactly the same? At the we have restored your computer to win 8 screen there is a windows update failed message with error 0xc1900101-0x0019.
    Does any body have an idea what may be going on?
    Thanks GWS.

    Many others are also afflicted:

    Microsoft is struggling to figure out how to handle a widely reported problem when Windows 8 users update to Windows 8.1
