Computer not detecting updates

Hi, everyone
It's about 4pm (EST) and when I check for updates, my computer says "No Important Updates Available."
Should I just try again tomorrow?

I'm going to be gone for several days so I was hoping to get them taken care of ahead of time -usually I can grab them by 1pm.

I'm sorry to bump this up, but my computer still isn't detecting yesterday's updates?
Should I wait it out longer, or install them manually?
