I went looking for the infamous "Auguust 12th updates" as I don't see any from my Windows Updates.
Below are all I can find.

Update for Windows 8.1 (KB2975719)
for 32-bit


for 64-bit

So, is that all ?
If not, when do I get to see them ?

Finally, 14 updates are offered from Windows Updates.
I had to click " check for updates " to get them.

For Windows 8 Professional 64-bit, today, there are 15 "important" Windows 8.1 updates and 1 "optional" update. There are also another 15 important updates for Office 2013 published today. With the default Windows Update settings of downloading and installing automatically, these may be distributed to various systems incrementally, as not to overload Windows Update servers. You were able to get the updates expedited to your system by forcing a check for the updates. This pulls them manually.

I had the same experience, David. I have no idea why they were not waiting for me to download. Oddly, as normal, the "definition " update was waiting.
Anyway, all done now.
P.S. And yes, those Office updates.

We were notified that there would not be the suggested 8.2 or 8.1.2

Rather there would be some items incrementally via WU beginning around August 12th.

And, viola, here they come, exactly when alleged.

Hang on, have to reboot, now, to complete mine...
