So after last week's updates (27th) I now noticed the option under "Advanced options" is still unchecked and greyed out, but now on the main page under the grey box to "Check for updates" I see "Check online for updates from Microsoft Update.". I could have sworn that option wasn't there before. I checked on another of my computers, and I don't have that, but I do have the advanced option available and checked. I wonder why it's different on one compared to the other. Either way I'm happy now that I can check for updates again.
