    Did you try changing the region to US?

    Nope, but ive never done that previously and its worked fine.
    Any reason it would be a US only update?

    I seem to remember that some users still reported this problem after MS announced that it was fixed, however some still couldn't update and that's when a few users suggested changing the region and trying. Some have had success, so give it a shot

    Ive probably tried around 30 times now, and restarted my phone many times.

    When you say am i running on dev preview, what exactly dyou mean? Ive installed dev previews previously, and current OS is 8.10.14180.257

    haha yes sorry I meant to edit and remove that part of my question. It isn't your phone, it's just the update that is messed up...

    Completely resetting your phone with the NSU software and then going through all the updates might work

    But that will take a lot of time.. It's up to you :) it worked for other users

    If your phone in under warranty than go to near by Nokia care store or MS and get it update.
    If it isn't under warranty than pay a very little fee and get it updated.
    If update is available in your region.
    Don't forget to backup your data before going to ms/Nokia store for update

    Haha that is an option or you could try to sell your phone and get one that comes with 8.1 preinstalled? :D
