    You get Office 2016-Updates by WINDOWS-Update only if you are using Office 2016 Volume-Edition.
    And Volume-Update-cycle is mostly on Patch-Tuesday (once in a month).

    But if you are using Click2Run Office Insider/Preview or Current/Retail then you must use the Update from within Office.
    Start (for example) Word, then -> File -> Account -> Update Options -> Update now.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I'm using Office 2016 Volume Edition :/ and in other devices (with Windows 10 and 8.1) I receive all Office 2016 updates

    If you are using Windows Update instead of Microsoft Update, Office 2016 updates can't be reached.

    Last time i checked you only get office updates by using Microsoft Update (by selecting you want windows update to switch to ms update or when you startup an office program like word it will ask you if you want office updates to be downloaded, both options result in the same: office get's it's updates by ms update) :)

    Try this script murphy78 provided to set MS Update instead of WU.

    I don't think the best solution is addressed by using the script posted, but rather making available, activating, MICROSOFT UPDATE EXTENSION by which Microsoft update gets Office 2016 updates for versions without the update button in the account menu.


    Take a quick look to my recent thread as well

    It can be done with the mu site, .vbs script, or powershell:
    Code:
    $ServiceManager = New-Object -ComObject "Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager"
    $ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    $ServiceManager.AddService2("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")
