Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 developer preview error 8018830f fixed, 'packaging problem' to blame

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has taken it to Twitter to reveal that a fix is now available for those of you experiencing error 8018830f when trying to update to Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Developer Preview. Microsoft is citing a 'packaging problem' as the reason for the 8018830f error.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore acknowledge earlier this week that some users were indeed experiencing an error when trying to install Update 1. "Folks seeing error 8018830f on update- we're looking into it, thx for letting us know. Its a very small %, so the rest of you keep going," he stated. Belfiore also added that Microsoft thinks the issue is related to low system storage. "If you hit the update error, it's unlikely that retrying will work. We think it's related to low system storage. Give us some time," he adds.

Unfortunately, some users are experiencing another issue when trying to update to the latest developer preview release. This issue deals with a low storage problem. If you are experiencing error 80188308, Belfiore suggests that you continue being patient as Microsoft works on a fix.
