    I am trying to upgrade my Windows 8 Pro to 8.1 but the update doesn't show in the store, which makes sense

    I activated it originally with Kmspico.
    What do I need to do?

    KMS activated PCs are not eligible to upgrade via store. You need to do fresh install!

    (starts a slow clap) Congrats you get a medal.

    Go grab a ISO copy of Windows 8.1 to upgrade by burning a copy of Windows 8.1 to DVD. Then do the upgrade that way as you will avoid the hassle of a fresh install.
