I just installed MS Office 2016 Pro Plus edition and its build version is 16.0.4312.1000. The problem is that on File -> Account page the update buttons/options are not present below the "About" button. As much as I can remember, the last office 2016 installation I had sometime ago had those options through which I used to update to latest build. How can I get those back? Is there some edition difference?

Note: I tried installing updates through Windows Update. Some updates were installed but the build version was the same!

As stated from the Microsoft Office Support Site:

If Update Options is missing under Product Information, and the About button is the only option available, you either have a volume license install of Office 2016, or your company is using Group Policy to manage Office updates. Try Microsoft Update to get the latest Office 2016 updates or contact your company help desk.


Another possibility is that you installed Office 365 from the Microsoft Store (or it was pre-installed using the Microsoft Store). In this case, you need to use Microsoft Store to update it (from the ... button, Downloads and Updates / Get Updates).
