I saw lots of announcements as usual yesterday with the monthly Microsoft security releases however it seems that my Windows 8 systems aren't seeing any update available. Additionally, my Windows Server 2012 R2 box doesn't show any available updates.

 

My Windows 10 devices and Windows 7 devices all found and installed updates but there seems to be nothing available at the Windows 8/8.1 level.

 

Even searching the Microsoft Update Catalog seems to show nothing available at the Windows 8 level.

 

Is everyone else experiencing this? Seems odd to me.

There is no Security Rollup for 8.1 this month. There is a security update for Adobe flash in 8.1.

 

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-jan.aspx

 

Note: There are no security fixes or quality improvements for Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 for release on Update Tuesday for January 2017. As such, there is no Security Only Quality Update or Security Monthly Quality Rollup release for these platforms this month.

 

Edit: Microsoft no longer supports Windows 8 with security updates, only 8.1.
