Should I update? I've been told in the past not to update - now I am told to update... what is it?!
I had a conversation with Larry Imm, our Elementary IT guru, and he had this sound advice.
There are two types of updates:

Major updates are the big revamps to the user experience and often come with a very obvious visual change. These updates are generally pretty scheduled. Apple usually launches their new iOS in September and Android is shortly thereafter.
Major updates come with a few weeks/months of growing pains. These growing pains are the unforeseen bugs and issues that result in the device being more advanced (so to speak) than add-on software, apps, and hardware. That software, those apps, and the hardware often need their own updates to keep pace with the continuous evolution of those operating systems.
Major updates should be not be conducted until IT can fully examine the effects. Do not do a major update until we advise you to do so.
Point updates are the corrections to the various bugs and growing pains that accompany the major updates. They make the user experience safer, more efficient, and with less trouble.
Point updates are essential updates that should be done as soon as practical every time.
