Speaking of people not understanding what to update and what not, here is an important article.
It is about Windows 10.  I haven't checked online to see if this is any different in Windows 11.
Not that this is your fault, but that article is grossly out of date.  This is one of the reasons I try to encourage people to update to a given Windows release, if they intend to, as promptly as possible after the "bleeding edge" period is over, and I consider that to be 6 months.

Check for updates has not worked as noted there for some time.  It will pull back optional updates, but those are placed in their own Optional Quality Updates section on the Windows Update screen, and you must choose to download and install them.  I've had several sitting there over time, and I do agree with the principle that applying optional updates is bad practice if your goal is to maintain maximum system stability.

2018 is several lifetimes ago for Windows 10 in the age of Windows As A Service and there have been major changes to the behaviors of Windows Update since then.
