    Same for me....but I have Office 2016 Pro Plus. Although doing a manual search for updates....I get a weird action. I get 2 windows that pop up. The first window states: You're up to date and the 2 window is actually checking for updates. Yet finding nothing.....it's been doing this for almost 15 minutes now.....just the loading bar moving across.

    Too many office updates. Really that and it signing me saying it is not activated out on other computers that don't use office much is why I cancelled it. I did love office the free alternatives stink but until MS lets me just buy a license of office on 3 computers not an automatic subscription I will consider it again.

    I certainly concur on the volume of updates. They are a PITA

    And the fact that Office runs a startup item wasting resources and Office won't load if you disable it. It's job is to keep office updated yet almost every time I go to use it there is more updates to install.

    Looks like this release doesn't address the issue where in Outlook 2016 you get prompted for credentials when opening attachments that showed up in 8431.2079

    Well I got up and checked for updates again just now, still nothing. Says .2709 is still up to date. This is another frustration, they release an online notifier about a release on 2nd Oct and here we are on 4th Oct and no sign. Seems once again the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing at MS
