    Attention-grabbing headline, but it just means you can't install the next security updates until you've installed the last security updates.

    Definitely attention grabbing headline. Windows 8.1 Update is a no brainer and it doesn't seem excessive to require it to be installed before applying upcoming updates.

    I finally got a system to 8.1 successfully (it seems so far), checking the last few days for additional updates however keeps returning exactly three optional updates; Silverlight, Ding bar, and Bing desktop. Anything that I might need to do to get the 8.1.1 Update updates to show up?

    Oh dear, I did download and install multiple updates at once and made the computer wait to restart...someday I wouldn't be surprised to read "You touched the computer" under symptoms.

    Thanks

    Edit: Oops, the OS just told me that update is already installed.
