Windows 8.1 just installed updates that are not listed

I just powered-on my machine on March 21, 2015.
Windows 8.1 took much longer to get me to a log on screen
because it was installing updates.

I logged on as admin and went to update history to see what
windows installed -- and the last update listed in update history
occurred on March 13, 2015.

What did windows install when I turned on my machine?

Strange?

Which tab did you look under: View Update History or Installed Updates?

In my case, the former had an extra entry hardware related.

Also, unmentioned was how long the machine was turned off before today. It is probably irrelevant. Still ...

You are correct.
Under View Update History, the last entry is from March 13, 2015
But under View Installed Updates the latest entry is from tonight, March 12, 2015.

And there it lists 14 updates with their KB numbers.
But why should there be a difference?

Most grateful for your help.
For me this case is solved -- for Microsoft it's another fix they really ought to make.
Is there a place I can submit a bug report or something similar?
Or even better, can I get in touch with a developer who has a way to get this submitted?
