If it aint broke dont try n fix it.
In other words if your drone is doing everything it should be doing then dont do the update.
But its your bird and your call but i would serious suggest you read theough this forum in regards to update issues and consider if you want to take the risk.

I would think about updating before the warranty runs out just in case it causes any issues with the hardware (unlikely but not unknown). At least then it would be covered under warranty if any major issues.

I would recommend you upgrade it. if the drone has potential hardware issues, these issues will be exposed during the firmware upgrading process. You'll be able to get it resolved under warranty if it's product malfunction and within the warranty period.

I would not update it ever! The latest updates do not add any cool new features or anything useful. The standard DJI message is always to update it, but frankly it is not necessary if it is flying OK. Updates of the recent kind are more likely to introduce the new login requirement and stuff. So, my advice would be to leave it, and also disable updates of the Go App on your phone as well.
