    Windows Update just found and downloaded defintions version 1.245.1162.0 for me. So it seems like Windows Update and updating through Defender itself uses different servers. For some reason WU skipped some defintions.

    Does Windows Update find a new definition update for you now? Can you update the definitions manually via Defender itself?

    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10

    ...though following it will clear your update history.
    done now to play the waiting game since i have all the latest updates. I wasn't recieving any error messages though and i have been getting the definitions correctly via defender and my dad's netbook has the exact problem as well while running 1607.

    (UPDATE) just run update on my dad's netbook without making any changes and it found and installed latest definitions

    (UPDATE 2) just ran update on my desktop and it found and installed the latest definition
