Edge not updating in Intune / Cloud-only managed computers

I have never seen any update notifications for Edge in my computers and via Defender for Endpoint (ATP) I found out that Edge is not updated for all computers. I have these settings enabled for Edge in Administrative Templates and with this nothing happends;

Auto-update check period override = Enabled = 30
Set the time period for update notifications = Enabled = 3600000 (milliseconds)
Update policy override = Enabled = Always allow updates

    @Crystal-MSFT hi thanks again, I think that the deal breaker here was to enable the "Enable component updates in Microsoft Edge" here. After this, things started rolling. Also it seems, that this update behavior is much slower to happen, so you need to have patience. I enabled the last settings in a middle of a day, and first update behavior only was saw at evening. Here are the settings which do affect the update activity in my Config Profile in Intune;

    Set the time period for update notifications
    Update policy override
    Time period in each day to suppress auto-update check
    Auto-update check period override
    Enable component updates in Microsoft Edge
    Notify a user that a browser restart is recommended or required for pending updates

    @Pavel Yannara Mirochnitchenko , For our issue, we can firstly check if the policy is applied to Edge. We can go to Edge, enter "edge://policy" in the address bar to see if the policy is there.
    If there's any update, feel free to let us know.

    @Crystal-MSFT thanks, that Policy seems to be hidden option / page, you really need to know about its existance, very usefull!

    So, I actually added yesterday one more setting "Enable componen updates in Microsoft Edge", that seemed first to do the trick, but silent, I see no notifications. Still, this works 50-50. I have 2 computers, one has new edge 94.0.992.31, another one has old version 93.0.961.52. Both computers has absolutelly same policy values and all update settings are applied.
