How long does the checking for update get stuck you should leave it at lease for few hours before giving up on it.
Can you try repair install of Windows 8.1 or download and create new version of Windows 8.1 DVD and clean install Windows 8.1 OS.

After a fresh install of Windows 8.1 the Windows Update client needs an update make sure you install https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3065988 and
also the latest Internet Explorer 11 before trying to search for updates.
Note: Before installing the KB3065988 make sure you install the prerequisites.
