Office Home & Business 2019 check for updates never finds any updates
Windows 10 Pro (v20H2 I believe), with Office 2019 Home & Business. Windows updates are set to check for MS software, and has never installed an update to this date. I have run the online repair of Office and no help. Office works most of the time, but I have had to do online repairs a couple of times to fix "Document not saved". Which is why this time I noticed the build is still from Sep 2018. I have done check for updates in Office programs and they say up to date. When I compare the About information is when I saw it never updates. I have run the troubleshooter on Windows updates also. Nothing else is wrong with any software on the computer. This computer is identical setup (Software & Hardware) to 2 other laptops which have never had a problem and properly update.
You should see channel of One-Time Purchase for the Office 2019 which will never get an update.
Office 2019 is a one-time purchase that comes with classic apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for PC or Mac, and does not include any of the services that come with a Microsoft 365 subscription. One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you'll have to buy it at full price.
You will only get security updates and not feature updates like the Microsoft 365 apps which come with a monthly or annual subscription. You Office 2019 Home and Business will get a new Build number if a feature update is installed.
