    I would run Windows update manually and then look at what's offered, including the recommended updates. If memory serves me the original Update 1 was 4 or 5 updates and they had to be done in a certain order. There may be a prerequisite update that you haven't done yet. Also, many times I have seen the "windows is up to date" message and then ran Windows update manually only for it to show more updates. It just means Windows is up to date as of the last time it checked for updates. That could have been a day or days ago.
