Is there any difference between software upgrade and software update ?

Hi Experts , 

 

Is there any difference between software upgrade and software update ? or both are same ?

 

We have IOS-XE version 17.3.3 and due to some vulnerability reported by Cisco , We have to update to FIRST FIXED OR NOT AFFECTED = 17.3.5 ..what are we suppose to do here ? 

Should we upgrade the IOS_XE to 17.3.5 ..Also can someone share the correct path to download 17.3.5 version for Cisco 9300 (C9300-48UXM)

 

Thank you in advance .

About your question:

"


The main difference between update and upgrade is that update is to make and keep something up to date or a better version of the older one, often to solve glitches or problems, whereas upgrade is to raise something to a higher standard by adding or replacing few components.

"

 If you change from  17.3.3 to 17.3.5 this is an update. But when cisco realease the 18.0.0 and you move to that, then it will be an upgrade.

 

 

thanks @Flavio Miranda ,

 

So the procedure to upgrade IOS-XE version or update IOS-XE version is same ? or we have any difference ?
