Those are garbage. 5GB+ iso for a single edition and integrated updates are a mess. Better download regular 7 SP1 media refresh iso and manually update it with simplix updatepack.

Those integrated updates are broken or what?

No, just multiple cumulative updates integrate for no reason. For reference, my own x64 AIO (Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, Enterprise) made using simplix updatepack and abbodi's addons(directx, visual c++, .net framework) is the same size as the single index x64 Ultimate, Pro and Home Premium images. Mine are even more up-to-date than these "official homebrews"...

So, should I save the August 2018 setups just to be safe, wait for may 1st and then download the regular Windows 7 setups? Cause I don't have any official windows 7 installations, and I want to save them.

the Aug. 2018 Win7 SP1 ISOs are only available in USA English - not available for foreign (non-English) languages.  they are also "standalone" editions that bundle a single edition and are NOT AIOs (so the ei.cfg removal trick won't work with the Aug 2018 ISOs because ei.cfg is actually not present in these ISOs)
they also contain certain win7 "telemetry" updates which some people despise 

original Win7 SP1 ISOs (not the Aug 2018 ones) can be used as AIOs with the ei.cfg removal trick - and these older Win7 ISOs are available in many languages
