There have been some reports of issues with this month’s non-security updates for Office 2013 clicktorun on Windows 7
Here is the most reliable information we have found. It is given by Susan Bradley who is a Moderator on the Microsoft Community posts
“Office 2013 missing after June 11 Microsoft auto updates”

So far what seems to be working is an uninstall/reinstall of 2013. Not optimal for sure.
Based on reading between the lines and the symptoms- it appears to me to be primarily Office 2013 clicktorun on Windows 7. No VL/MSI/KMS deployment of 2013 is reporting this issue.
I don’t read that it’s the Windows updates, but the click2run update barfed.

The past info to uninstall/reinstall:
“To resolve this problem, run the Office uninstall fixit from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2739501.
Next, re-install Office 2013 by logging into www.office.com/myaccount with your registered email address and click Install Office.”

No out-of-band updates were released during the last month.
