You can trigger that by opening System Preferences/App Store pane. Click the Check Now button.I have my MacMini set to download & install updates automatically and have not seen any 10.12.4 (Sierra) offered, pop up yet???!!!

Your App Store will launch. Should offer the 10.12.4 update. If you DO have it set to always download updates, you may only need to restart, and it will install at that time.
Or, maybe the update has already installed - What macOS version are you running right now?
You can also, as this thread suggests, download the combined 10.12.4 update, and install that to update your system, if you wish.Nope, I checked yesterday evening and it said, " No updates available." And still on 10.12.3. May re-check later this evening. On my Chromebook this moment.
And - now you are guessing that the combo update (which has been well known for correcting a wide variety of issues) won't actually fix your App Store, so updates begin arriving automatically, as you hope.
You reported a problem (no automatic updates), and I suggested a method that is well known to fix system issues.
So, if I may paraphrase that old saying "if it is kinda broke, try the combo update, which may fix it."
You can ALSO do the 10.12.3 combined updater, which doesn't update your system, but might also fix your update issue as it resets and checks for items that are supposed to exist, but might not be complete, or missing.
Your choice, I guess
Just curious, your App Store/Updates tab lists the previous updates that it has installed. What is listed there for you? (very recent items such as the Remote Desktop Client Update ver 3.9.2, and iTunes version 12.6 should be listed, with the dates that they were installed)
Wondering if you have ANY recent updates?
Hmmm... Why would you download the Sierra install app, when you only need the update?There will be no 'update'. Go to 'Featured' and then to MacOS Sierra in the right column.
Now I'm questioning myself! I believe so, but can't remember.Hmmm... Why would you download the Sierra install app, when you only need the update?
Are you saying that would then show a download for the Sierra update (not the full install?)
