My windows update (win 8.1) says that I cannot update windows updates as some settings are managed by my system administrator - but i am the administrator. on other forums I found solutions that use "gpedit.msc"- which I have searched for but cannot find - so this is not the solution for me.

Check all your Windows Update settings:
If something has gone awry and you are the administrator it might well give that message.

If that doesn't help download and run the Windows Update troubleshooter for Win8.1 from here:
Do not Run it in the browser. Instead Save the file, find it and double click it to start the troubleshooter.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
