If you want more than high priority updates then you have to go to 'windows update' / 'microsoft update' and select 'optional updates'

Is this the command you think you used previously from the Start Menu's "Run" field?:
%SystemRoot%\system32\wupdmgr.exe
If so, that should just start Internet Explorer and resolve to:
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us
or
http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us
(depending on whether you are set to use "Windows Update" or "Microsoft Update", as shown in ve3ofa's screenshot above.
