|Having delayed embarking on this update to allow the bugs to be sorted, I nearly installed the update today.|
The first issue was that the update had vanished from the Apps Store. There are geeks fiddles around to get this to appear but from another website it seems MS keep pulling it because they are overloaded.
I then discovered this dated 12 November 2013:
Seems this update can screw up your system requiring a clean reload of Win 8.
I also read there is some requisite to first apply update
KB2871839 KB2871389 (whatever that is - seems to be rather elusive).
EDIT: Seems a typo in that KB number is doing the rounds - see post below.
IMO the best advice for those who have not yet installed the Win 8.1 update to keep waiting a few more weeks to see how it shakes out rather than being a guinea pig at this stage. The odd patch is to be expected but this all sounds very messy.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
