The update pushed out earlier this month for the Windows RT-powered Microsoft Surface unfortunately introduced a bug affecting users that are now no longer able to able to access the Windows Store or Windows Update. Additionally, some users complain that updates are attempted do not complete.
According to a Microsoft official statement the company will issue a fix for the problem early next month. “Some Windows RT customers who attempted to apply January’s bulletins had issues installing updates. Specifically, impacted Windows RT devices went into connected standby mode during the download of updates from Windows Update, causing the connection to be disrupted. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and are working to correct the issue; we expect to have a fix in place in the first week of February”.
While the fix, according to the spokesperson quoted above, will be rolled out to all Windows RT-powered devices, Microsoft’s own Surface tablet running Windows RT makes up for the majority of slates on the market powered by Redmond’s tablet OS.
