Nope. It's not from Microsoft. Just delete the email.

Do you normally receive all of your Microsoft Updates directly from
Microsoft via e-mail?
Do you really think Microsoft tracks everyone using their email and knows
what updates they have and what updates they need, even if they have 8
personal machines?

Come on people - wake up.
