Windows 7: No new Windows updates shown when 'search for updates' - Problem?

No new Windows updates shown when 'search for updates' - Problem?

Hi, it seems like I get no more updates offered when I search for updates. My latest important updates are from 05.10.13. Since then I only get the same 42 optional updates shown. Shouldn't there be a few new ones (important and optional ones) since one month? Yesterday I read about the new IE11, that didn't show up either. Is there a website with a history of all released updates so I can check if there are any updates released/available that I didn't get offered in the last month?

IE 11 isn't being offered through Windows Updates yet, except in certain areas.
The latest Important Updates should have been installed around 8th October


What happens if you attempt to install any of the optional updates?


There is no formal list of updates, since the list may vary from machine to machine - however, the listing in the forum stick here is kept pretty much up-to-date.

Ok, I installed all the optional updates except for the graphics driver. And after that I got offered a new important update.
