Flex 4 1470 2-in-1 14"

I bought the Flex 4 1470 2-in-1 14"  in July 2016 and today when I turned it on I got a pop-up and something to the effect that I had Lenovo critical updates and did I want to install them. I didn't know what they were but thought they were needed for my Flex, I clicked OK. Then I got another pop-up saying something to the effect that the binaries would change for yoga and some other machines, but it didn't mention my Flex and so I answered NO to the download.

Does anyone know what this was all about and whether I needed those critical update/downloads?

And if I do need them, how do I now get them?

This is all very confusing to us senior citiens and these random pop-ups.

Please help me if you can.

Hi alicez,

 

The Flex and the Yoga use the same architecture, that is why you would have received this. It is your choice if you install them or not, but if you choose to then critical updates can be found in the Lenovo Companion software.

Do I need the "critical" bios update Lenovo keeps pushing out?  Yes or no, please.
