Microsoft released a whole batch of non-security updates for Microsoft Office 2013 and Microsoft Office 2016 on September 5, 2017.
The updates are available via Windows Update, and also as individual downloads on Microsoft’s Download Center website and the Microsoft Update Catalog website.
Note that it is recommended to only install updates of Office applications that you work with. It is usually not necessary to install all Office patches.
Office 2007 is on extended support which means that it receives only security updates but no feature updates anymore. No updates for Office 2010 listed this time.
