Has Win7 update stopped working

for the last 2 days I have tried to download WIN7 updates to my laptop. It is set to do it manually. I had decided to keep WIN7 on the laptop and only upgraded my desktop to WIN 10 to see how things work. On Friday (July 29) it said I had 24 updates to download. Yesterday morning (July 30) it said I had 29 updates to download and both days every time I picked some to download it just spun for a long time and never downloaded them. This morning (July 31) it now says I don't have any updates to download. I thought Windows 7 was supported until 2020?

Windows 7 is now in the extended support phase so will only receive security updates until end of support in 2020

On the skylake processor support. I think you can still use your computer with windows 7 but Microsoft windows update won't provide any skylake patches after the cut off support date for older version of windows. They may or may not patch security vulnerabilities after the cut off date.

That's pretty much what I said.

I want nothing from Microsoft concerning my Asus motherboard or my Intel CPU.
Asus, Intel and me will take care of such things.

I never use MS sources for any driver, except for a first OS load, and they are replaced PDQ. I may use them whist troubleshooting a hardware issue on someone else's system where I do not know the history, but prefer to use drivers direct from the manufacturer or even the component level supplier where there are issues with manufacturers

When I install Windows 7 I let it load what ever drivers it takes to get things going properly.
Once up and running properly I check for drivers as I see fit. I must say that most of Windows 7 loaded drivers installed work just fine with a Clean Install.

Now and again I update Realtec and Nvidia drivers from the manufacture.
