Microsoft fixes bug that was preventing Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 from installing correctly
Microsoft has apparently resolved a bug that was showing error code 8018830f, for some who were trying to install the Developer Preview version of Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. On Thursday afternoon, those who had received the error message with the code, were being alerted that the latest build of Microsoft's mobile OS was ready, along with the first update, to be installed properly.

The repair by Microsoft might also help those who received an even rarer error message, 80188306, update their phones. So far, most of the fixes are taking place on Nokia Lumia 925 units that have already received the Lumia Cyan update.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has sent out a tweet, blaming a "packaging problem" for the error. He is telling those affected by the 8018830f message to try the update again, as it should now work.
