Is it normal to see almost no updates while running cgminer? I just wanted to make sure my solo mining setup was working, since cgminer's output was bare compared to when mining in a pool.

All I see occasional are "block height changes". I have 0 HW errors, but my accepted rate is also 0 and I see no work being sent to me. The hash rate is normal, so I think my miner is working.

A "share" means a share of the reward at the pool you're mining. When you're mining solo, there's no reward unless you find a block, so there's nothing to share. If you have a hashrate demonstrable then you're mining satisfactorily. Bear in mind that you need a well connected ultra low latency bitcoin node to warrant mining solo since your chance of having an orphaned block is much higher which would put any luck or effort to waste. Home internet type setups for bitcoin nodes should really only be used as a last resort for solo mining for that reason.
