Hi,

Does it make sense that since installing the Anniversary update on a new computer last month these are all the updates that were received?

 

Thank you.

Yes, because the cumulative updates contain many, many patch updates that you'll never see individually if you're reinstalling Windows long after their initial release.

 

I presume this was a reset or reinstall from the Version 1607 ISO burned to bootable media.  More recent downloads from the Windows 10 Download Page are for Version 1703 which is what's been rolling out since March.

Normally is one cumulative update in months and sometimes as been two, but very rarely. 
So, if You have got one in months, it is absolutely OK. 
But don't forgot, that nearly every day You get updates for apps and Windows Defender.

It's a new computer that got the Anniversary update soon after starting it up. No reinstalls were done.

More recent downloads from the Windows 10 Download Page are for Version 1703 which is what's been rolling out since March.

I guess I'll wait till they send it to me directly like the Anniversary update.

bcmo,

 

         It's always a good idea to wait until your particular machine ends up in an update/upgrade cohort as part of Windows Update for the major updates.  Two of my three computers have been updated to Creators Update (Version 1703) but my machine running Win10 Pro 32-bit is still in "watch and wait" mode.

Precisely my attitude.

Yes.  The cumulative updates are exactly what their name states:  cumulative.
