Just to point out.

I only recently noticed the Windows 8 (x86) in the releases2.list and went about downloading it.
Everything was OK, except for Windows8-RT-KB2862973-x86.msu
After verification on the Microsoft site, it seems to have been replaced with Windows8-RT-KB2862973-v2-x86

P.S. I haven't tried updating my Windows 8 (x64) autopatcher yet.

Thanks for letting us know Phenix, the Windows 8 releases on releases2 are not currently being maintained. Therefore they will be missing updates from the date of last update of the release..

KB2862973_v2.7z
FYI --- Have edited the apm modules for both x86 and x64, attached to post. Download the archive and place the respective module in Critical for each architecture, delete the original modules.
Also provided are the download links for the installers:

x64
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... v2-x64.msu

x86
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... v2-x86.msu

That should keep you happy... :) :)

Any time --- was lucky I have a clients machine here running Windows 8 that required updating, updated this to 8.1 via Windows Apps Store..

Now have other packages to install --- damn another session of burning the midnight oil !!
