No update history says "never checked" & "never installed"

    No update history says "never checked" & "never installed"


    Another question/puzzle. Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

    I clean installed W8.1 three days ago, and the first thing I did was bring it up to date with all the offered updates. All installed successfully and I thought no more of it. At some point after this I made a system image backup, which today I have restored to. When I now look at the "classic" windows update screen it says I have never checked for updates and none are installed. Forcing a check for updates brings only two up as can be seen in the pictures. If I go to "view installed updates" then there is a lot of stuff in there, whih I assume could be the previously installed original batch.


    I'm guessing this is normal behaviour but it seems slightly odd (the on screen messages at least)

    Not odd... Considering that is a "clean install"(albeit with integrated updates) - thus no update history (file) exists.

    Hmmm... OK

    Integrated updates ? Never come across that term before. I know I selected and installed all the offered updates (just as in W7 where they would have then appeared in the installed updates list). My settings for Windows update is to notify only.

    Yup, integrated means that the updates have overwritten/updated components within the OS..they are not an add-on and can be discarded after successful update - hope this makes sense.

    That does make a bit of sense actually I did run a disk clean and used the clean up system files option.

    Thanks.

    A further update on this... there is a "problem" and I seem to have found the culprit,

    AOMEI freeware bug when restoring images.
