8018830f error code is actually a error occuring in the Update Package..
Downloading the update completely and showing the update cant be installed or opened.
This same error occured for many during GDR2 (Lumia Amber ) and WP8.1 Update 1 (PFD)
This error should be cleared from the part of Microsoft. For Update 1 they have cleared the error.
Once they came to know about this they will modify the update package and release it via OTA.
So wait Patiently..

Or if you want it right now you have a choice of NSRT (Nokia Software Recovery Tool)
This download the Lumia Cyan and will install it to phone manually.
** This installation will completely wipe out your phone and you will get your device as a newly unboxed one.. So if you update via NSRT make sure you keep a backup.

Well, I have the HTC One M8 for Windows version and there is hardly anything on a fix for the 8018830f update error for this device. Everything is a fix for the Lumia devices. I tried changing the language and it worked for one update, but I can't seem to duplicated it so I can continue to update my device. Any help would be appreciated.
