Depends Jul 31, 2020

It depends on how important they are. Sometimes I'll install the updates immediately, and other times I'll wait until I'm less busy.

Automatic Jul 31, 2020

Most packages have automatic updates or scheduled updates. I don't control these. Let them update as required.
For other packages, like MemoQ, I do it manually and rarely.

Most of software programs update automatically. If I have to take the initiative, I drag my feet until I no longer have a choice.

ASAP, but never in the middle of a job (unless the client specifically tells me to do so).
