Because you are relying on the arcane web interface search.
Nobody knows why it chooses the order of presenting its results.
In fact, try adding Fermu's tip to your search criteria

If you use the WU troubleshooter and search for wuaueng
you can see MS give the same tip for code 0x800A01AE

then one of the first things it would do would be update itself
with the most current versions of those modules.
