The August cumulative update for Version 1607 deletes the "Update History". Read about it here and here.

While you can still see your installed updates by clicking on "Uninstall updates", you won't be able to see the rest of the history.

Look in the old Control Panel, they are still listed there.

Just as I said.

But again, only some, not all.

Which is utterly unsurprising once a cumulative update, which contains potentially many previous piecemeal updates, is installed.  Windows Update is going back and, at a minimum, hiding previous updates that you could not uninstall were you not to uninstall the subsequent cumulative update first.  It could be deleting them, for all I know.

 

If a system has been stable then they are really of no concern anyway, and their collective presence in a cumulative update is documented.

But usually this doesn't happen after a patch Tuesday update, only after OS upgrades (like 1511 to 1607 or 1607 to 1703).

No way I can understand why should be the list of things, that were some time ago there, but not no more, if they have been replaced with new ones.
