Windows 7: Disappearing Important Updates

Disappearing Important Updates

The monthly update for June 2018 showed up in my System Tray to be installed.
I usually wait about a week to install it to avoid any issues yet to be discovered. However, today after I booted the computer the System Tray (and the update section) no longer shows any Important Updates.

Now I know I can do a manual update search, but anyone know what gives on the missing un-installed Important Updates previously showing? I did a reboot just to see and they are still no longer showing.

Have you searched your installed updates to see if it has installed, hence disappearing from the System Tray?

I hope this helps!

No I did not think to do that since I don't allow WIN to install updates automatically, but I just checked and there is no install showing.

EDIT: The missing updates reappeared today. Still don't know why they disappeared yesterday. Thanks for your response.
