Office 2016 for Mac - Updating Office on Mac Sierra

Office 2016 for Mac is updated on a regular basis to provide new features, security updates, and non-security updates. Please read the information below if you are currently or have previously experienced errors when trying to install Office on a Mac machine running Sierra.

Updates are available from Microsoft AutoUpdate (MAU). To use MAU, start an Office application, such as Word, and then choose Help > Check for Updates. If you're an admin and want to update the computers in your organization with your existing software deployment tools, you can download and deploy the update packages for each application.

NOTE: Microsoft AutoUpdate provides updates for Office 2016 for Mac, Office for Mac 2011, Skype for Business on Mac, and Lync for Mac 2011. Therefore, you might receive a notification to update Microsoft AutoUpdate even if you're not running Office 2016 for Mac.
