I need to update my Windows 8 app but somehow I'm not able to create the packages. I am logged in with the right credentials. Incidentally, I'm not able to acquire a developer license through the Project -> Store menu. I've heard this is not a requirement for creating packages so I'm not sure if this issues are related.

The solution was to increase the version number in the manifest and clean/rebuild the project.

Thanks for your sharing the solution here.

To create and sideload Windows 8.x package, you will have to install a developer license. For Silverlight 8.x app, you could generate the.xap package file during the normal build process.
