    You can have more than 1 in one day but 8 does seem like a lot.

    As long as you don`t get 8 every day, I wouldn`t worry about it.

    I seem to get an update following a deliberate restart. Conversely I have add occasional days with no Defender update being added to the list.

    There seem to be a lot through a 24 hour period, but I suppose it`s normal.

    I just installed another.

    Did you have 8 updates or 8 attempts at getting updates?

    You can see a log of updates in Event viewer to check -
    Windows logs
    Source - WindowsUpdateClient
    EventID - 19

    and at
    Applications and service logs
    Windows defender
    EventID - 2000
    [and EventID - 2001 provides a log of update errors]
