Here's what I'm thinking....
You have it set on Automatic updates, but there are no updates to download/install, so therefor it wouldn't do anything. The Automatic Updates are mainly files that are considered high priority for your system, which always get downloaded/installed if set to do so.
On the other hand, you can go to the web site and get downloads from there, but those aren't the critical files you need, just files/programs that you can use.
But, if you should go to MS web site and let it check your computer, it will list all of the files you need and it'll get them ready for you to download. If there are no critical files needed for your computer, then it'll say so, and at the same time, there will be nothing for your automatic updates to update.
That's my take on it. Maybe someone else can explain differently.
Also check to make sure that you don't have any firewalls or such blocking it from updating.
