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

ike this. I installed this on virtualbox, there is a menu below the left but on my computer it doesn't appear.ike this. I installed this on virtualbox, there is a menu below the left but on my computer it doesn't appear.

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.
