Looks like the update from Gnome Software (that is what's showing you the graphical option to install updates) is it not working.

I'd recommend you to Initiate an update using dnf. From a terminal run:

sudo dnf upgrade

In addition, you can force Gnome Software to refresh its package metadata cache: sudo pkcon refresh force.
