seems that store update checks happens once every 24 hours, it first starts the first time you set up your phone (or when you go through the setup after a reset) and then runs every 24 hours from that time. for example, set up new phone on Monday 0900> next update check is on Tuesday 0900 > subsequent days at 0900
The update check will work with either a data or WiFi connection, if there is no working connection during the check, the check is then postponed until the next check. There seems to be no other way to invoke the update check at the moment. One way is to ensure that you have a consistent working connection. hope this helps :|

It's better not to have periodic check every few hours. Most notifications in WP are designed so. That way only one server pings all your notifications at one point and time, unlike Android where each app can go crazy any number of times it wants. This works better for battery management

At first this bugged me too. But actually I now prefer this periodic checking. With android I'd have updates daily. I'd often ignore them for a bit as it wasn't always convenient to update. Since one is rarely *waiting* for an update, it seems fine to get them in chunks (though 40+ seems excessive).
Being able to change the frequency or time of the check, however, would offer some users some advantages, though.

Now, I haven't seen any updates notifications on my phone for 2 weeks. And my friend's Lumia who had the same problem as mine. Suddenly received all his updates one week ago. Really hope that Microsoft will fix this bug.

Okay just got a text from friend who purchased a Lumia 920 after playing with my yellow phone. He had 76 app updates waiting! Now that clearly beats yours! But, he never ever kept the marketplace tile pinned! So only saw this updates mentioned in store today when he wanted to download something. Is that how you found it? or do you have the store tile pinned to home screen? You do get a regular count on that tile but if you don't have that pinned, there isn't any other way you would be reminded regularly.

88 app updates. (I didn't know the store manager liked playing games on the store unit)

I am having similar issue. I have store pinned on in Live tile but i don't receive updates on it. My wife has the same phone and she gets the update and doesn't install so i check her phone and update my Lumia with updates. The only difference is she is on WIFI all day and i connect only when i need to.
I am not getting portico update for Lumia 920 (US with AT&T) and i checked 10 times and on call with Tech support they couldn't resolve. They event tried pushing update from thier side and doesn't work.
It can't be Nokia this time as they don't own the OS. it has to be AT&T and/or Microsoft. As Nokia cannot provide updates on thier website (it was possible in symbian days) now with Microsoft and Carrier they can't. I hate the contract phones now.
I have a follow-up call from AT&T this week will update on what happens. If i get a Refurb again or they fix it.
