Click where it says "Windows Update" in the upper right corner of that screen.

When I first launch Settings after a reboot, mine looks like your first screen (no "Windows Update" in the menu on the left), but in the upper right corner there is a "Windows Update" status. When I click that, it takes me to the Windows Update page and the Windows Update menu item appears.
I've clicked in the upper right corner but can't.

@masfe12 Did you fix this? Same issue here... 

Hi any fix for this? I upgraded today, and i am missing this option as well in the settings

little update : found solution via regedit
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

key SettingsPageVisibility and either delete content of this key or delete the key itself, in my case i had like 15 menu options hidden via this

Thanks for this solution
Try to re-register Settings app:

1. Open administrative Windows PowerShell.

2. In PowerShell window, type/paste following cmdlet and press Enter key:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name windows.immersivecontrolpanel | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

3. Let the command complete.

Let us know if this helps!
