Why does it take so long to download updates in Windows 8 compared to Windows 7 ?

No issues here either, used Win8 for a while and now on Win8.1 Preview and Update is still working as expected

Did you do a fresh install from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 ? Do you have to or is it more like a service pack ?

Nope, just did the upgrade, worked like a charm.

Problem now is though that I can't upgrade properly to the final version of Win8.1

I will loose all my apps in that process, but you should be good going from Win8
