Welcome to the Community Forums.
Before updating the BIOS to H9ET84WW, you need to install BIOS version H9ET75WW first. More details here, https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/LENOVO-B-SERIES-LAPTOPS/LENOVO-B590...

If your machines is working normally now, without issues then updating to latest BIOS is not that necessary. In particular this update only addresses a possible (read, less likely) vulnerability in some machines and lists the NUC as the target platform, on Intel's web site.
If you are running a competent anti-malware suite (AV and Firewall) getting hacked or exposed to hacking attempts should be minimal (computationally infeasible) as long as you take precautions while not on a secure web site.
