Windows Updates SBS to Server 2016

Hello All,

Just migrated from SBS 2011 to Server 2016 on a new server.  The new server is now the DC and I want to make sure that it is getting its updates since none came through this past patch Tuesday.  The SBS Server was using WSUS and I assume that there was a GP that was created with it for updates since it sent them to all machines including the SBS Server.  Now that I am on Server 2016 do I have to turn something off to allow all machines to get updates directly from MS?  I did notice that this past patch Tuesday did not show any Server 2016 updates which is very odd since I have never seen a month go by without security updates for servers.  Any suggestions?
