When you boot from usb, look on you SSD. You should find a file "grldr" there because you installed a bootloader and grldr is the bootloader for grub4dos. Rename it to "ntldr", shut down, take out your usb and try to boot from SSD.
If I am wright that the mbr of windows is still there, it will find "ntldr" and boot grub4dos!

Have you changed anything on your usb? Why did you take out the usb? Let it boot the Puppy on your usb.

In Menu>Setup I find Xenialpup updates. You could check that from time to time. But in general Puppy does not need a lot of updating.
If you have a problem, have a look in the thread of the puppy you are using.
There is a lot of developping going on which you can follow more or less on this forum.
I like to look for a new puppy in development to try it out. You get a pretty good idea subscribing to the Puppy Linux Newsletters also.

One tip for newcomers: install Puppy frugally and not full: It is fast, easy, you can do it manually yourself, it is safer and it is the way Puppy is made to be installed.
