Default [Q] WP8 store updates problem

Hello. I have lumia 520 and I have a small problem.

My store don't show me the updates of my apps. Foe exemple when I enter into the store it don't show me any update, but if I search for "HERE Maps" (for example) there show me that app can be update.

My question is: how can I make it to show updates directly? It is not a great method to search for an app and to see if she has an update or not...

Is the Store tile pinned to the Start screen? It's OK to make it small, but it *might* not automatically check if you don't do that (not sure).

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

Oh, and do you have a data plan? The phone checks automatically in the background at certain times of day; if it has no connection at those times, it skips the check and waits for the next scheduled check.

I have store pinned to start screen and it is small (not medium, not large). It is ok to keep it like soo?

And users can modify that time? I mean, can I modify the hour when it checks for updates? Or how can I know when it do that?

I think it's determined by when the phone was set up originally (OOBE or Out Of Box Experience). I don't know for sure though; that's just a guess. In any case, I don't know of any way to change it.
