My music app in Window 8 is not working, it says "Your app need an update" and it says download this update from app store.

So I enter the app store but the app store says it is not available at our location (Myanmar, our country has a very very slow Internet connection.)

In this case what should I do to get my music app back? When I download the update app from microsoft site , I get one but it can't down load directly without using Windows app store

Has the Windows Store ever worked for you? –  Ramhound Aug 15 '13 at 10:50
I wonder if updating these things though a proxy might help - tunnelbear might let you test on a small scale for free, though I doubt the free tier would let you download say, windows 8.1 –  Journeyman Geek Nov 7 '13 at 1:15

You Can't

The application in question can only be updated through the Windows Store. If it was your own application that is another story.

There is one simple answer to your question. No. All of the apps on the windows store are downloaded from the store, updated through the store, and deleted from the store. There is no inbetween.
