1 Answer 1

You have to let those 3 updates install first. They update WindowsUpdate itself. Afterwards it will function more or less as expected.

Please note that at any time you may see that not all updates are offered because of the simple fact that some updates require that another update is installed first. Such updates are only offered/downloaded after the installation of the requirede update(s).
