Do you have that your updates are all automatically download and installed?
It may have downloaded and installed.
Go onl;ine to the Microsoft update site and view your history to see what was downloaded.
Another posibility is that you may need to reboot to do the final install of the update.

These are just a few ideas off the top of my head.
