    And even when trying to sync microsoft account, it says that my phone time is incorrect. Tried to restart the phone, reset all settings, but it does not help... what to do? Should i try to flash a different ROM? But it's not funny, the phone is new, got it just today, waited for a month and this sh*t comes up....

    Check region settings, timezone and then verify time

    Checked, everything is as it should be. What does "verify time" means?

    I didn't notice, that month was set to April :) changed to October and everything worked. Before that, it wasn't possible to check updates and sync email, facebook, etc accounts.

    I had the exact same problem and it was due to Date & Time settings; funnily it was wrong and Auto setting was setting the wrong date; tried setting the date and time few times and it works.

    I'm also having this issue. I had the Preview for Developers App installed and removed it, but the Windows Insider App also does not ask me for any Microsoft account credentials. What could the solution be? I have upgraded before and rolled back, but I am ready to upgrade now and cannot. Help me find a solution PLEASE!!

    In this sequence
    1) Backup your phone (setting > Backup > settings and apps)
    2) Update your phone
    3) :)

    What worked for me was to back up the phone, as posted by Vilaveras, then do a factory reset, Settings->About->Reset. When the phone was restarting, in the time zone settings, uncheck the "Tell Microsoft my location...". (I'm not sure this was needed, but it seemed like a good thing to do.) I cannot say why this worked, but at least I am through the issue now.

    Lumia 820. Same thing.
    I tried all the Region / Date+time tricks + more than 10 soft resets already... No solution yet.
    Hope someone figures it out.

    Btw, I was on build 512 but had to roll back a week ago to 8.1 (I never had an issue updating with same regional and date/time settings.

    I've found the solution on my 1320 Latin American CV:

    The only customization you should do to your phone is to set it to your preferred language (in my case, US English). Then let it run all the updates from the app store undisturbed. Don't restart when prompted, only when done downloading and installing this first batch of updates.

    Then run OS updates, restart as prompted. Run them again until no more updates are found. Then, if wanted, install the developer preview app and run THOSE OS updates.

    Only once you've done all these things should you: change the clock format to 24 hrs if wanted, change any of the keyboard settings (adding or removing languages), change the calendar to start the week on Monday, and adjust the time settings to your liking. It's one of these three things that results in error something thing f8f. Once you have the OS up to date, you can change the clock format to 24 hrs, etc. If you already messed this up, you need to reset your phone and start over.
