      I have Office 365 ProPlus installed, but when i get the updates from MS, I see Updates for Office 2013 products. Can someone tell me why I am getting those? thanks

      Did you ever have Office 2013 installed on your computer?

        If @deangross did have Office 2013 installed previously, there may be remnants in the registry together within his profile which, may be why he is being offered Office 2103 patches alongside Office 365.

      There might be a viewer or trial version of an older version of Office installed. Go into Programs and Features and see if any of this is installed; if so, uninstall it.

      Thanks for suggestions, i double checked in Programs and Features, and I have SharePoint Designer 2013 and InfoPath 2013, but none of the standard Office apps, which is what I’m getting the updates for.
