external storage device can be the cause of the error, when you are updating, make sure no external drive to disk is connected such as hard disk, memory cards and so on. Make sure you disconnect the external drives from your computer or laptop before you update to the windows 8.1 update or you will get the same error code again.
Now of course, if you don’t have a external device connected to your computer and yet you are still getting the errors, then you need to perform is clean boot on your computer. Clean boot state uses a minimal set of drivers and start-up programs. A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts, So after performing a clean boot, install the update again and see what happens.
