Maybe you are using Click To Run which updates Office 2013 automatically.

Did you already click "Check for updates"? I had to do that to see the updates.

And also don't forget to activate "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows" under Microsoft Update in Change Settings.

My Windows 7 (32-bit) devices are offering me Windows 7 SP1, which is strange as I already have SP1 installed...

It's also strange that it's only 2MB, you'd think a service pack would be bigger.

My Windows 7 (64-bit) device is not offering me Windows 7 SP1.

yeah and then i went into office itself and told it to check for updates and it told me that there arent any updates available. When I get home i am going to try it again and see if there is something going on locally at home.

August update Option? Here we go again. They must not want people to have the update that badly. The average user barely installs updates without the computer doing it for them, let a lone installing one under optional.

Because it's put under "optional", doesn't mean that it is not installed automaticaly.

Correct, which means nobody other than us will install it.

No, incorrect, the update will be installed automaticaly, it's just listed under optional, like I said before: for it being there, doesn't mean it's not installed when Windows Update is on automatic.

Nope :(

@warwagon: Usually non-critical updates are marked as option for a few weeks before they're set to automatic.
