I want to wrap up the topic until now 6-Oct-2021: (If there is something wrong please correct me)

To install Windows 11 on old machines that doesn't have TPM 2.0, we have two options:
1- Download Windows 11 iso file form here Download Windows 11 and do a clean install but you won't receive updates.
2- OR Upgrade (without losing data) to Windows 11 using" Universal MediaCreationTool wrapper" to bypass the checking requirements then download and start "Windows 11 Installation Assistant" from the previous link but also you won't receive updates (Or maybe receive it because some people claim they received updates even their machines are not compatible!).

Now, 1- Could someone confirm that they received Windows 11 updates (even if it is not compatible with out machine) from Settings >> Windows Updates?

2-Could someone confirm that we can install Windows 11 updates (even if it is not compatible with out machine) manually like download the .cab files and install it from powershell or using a tool like "Windows Update MiniTool" ?
Thank you for your time.
EDIT 15-Oct-2021: [SOLVED] Yes until this date (the date of editing this topic) you can install windows updates of Windows 11 on unsupported hardware from Settings >> Windows Update normally. Check: reply number #2 and #4

@Try3 Okay, Now confirmed that you can update Windows 11 from (Settings >> Windows Update) even if you installed Windows 11 on unsupported hardware (While I'm typing 15-Oct-2021). Look here: Let's run Windows 11 on an incompatible hardware
And I quote from @Bree this insightful reply form here Let's run Windows 11 on an incompatible hardware:
The exact wording of the statement from Microsoft is that "Devices that do not meet these system requirements will no longer be guaranteed to receive updates, including but not limited to security updates" (my bold)

I read this to mean that MS reserve the right to stop updates for unsupported devices at any time, though I suspect they won't exercise that right any time soon, if ever. But some time in the future they may want to add functions to the OS that can only work on supported devices. Rather than crashing all the unsupported ones they could pull the plug on updates. They would be able to point to that original statement should anyone complain saying 'don't say we didn't warn you'.
Thank you all.

Thank you for your kind words. And I can confirm that my test install on an unsupported machine got all the Patch Tuesday updates, like any supported machine should do.
