Upgrading to Windows 8.1 - "We couldn't update the System Reserved partiton"

I hit this repeatedly, and tried several suggested fixes that made no difference.

In my case, it turned out that the partition was virtually full (try Control Panel, then Computer Management, then Disk Management to see) and the solution was to increase the size of the partition. My suggestion is to grow it generously, then shrink it back most of the way (still leaving 100Mb or so free) once the installation is complete.
