This is a great question. My laptop has intel processor, intel chipset, intel graphics, intel Ethernet, intel wifi and intel Bluetooth, yet the driver update utility seems oblivious to all of them except for the wireless-AC 7260 wifi and Bluetooth. For those devices, it seems confused about the installed driver version. Intel needs to do some homework on this utility. The old java application worked better than the new driver update utility does.
This could be because your system is up to date. I ran the tool in my Intel® system and is giving an update only for the RTS (Intel® Rapid Storage)
You can look for the drivers manually. Go to Home then select the option find drivers manually
Could you attach the DxDiag log information? How to get it?
Dxdiag Report: Type dxdiag in Start Menu> open> Save> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
