Should I install all the Updates that come up in Update manager? Are they all for programs I have installed.

I usually do. Many are security or stability updates for installed applications. There shouldn't be any problems, but if there are, just come back and let us know. Someone here will help fix it.

The updater manager will only install updates for programs that you've already got installed.

Packages are contstantly updated with newer versions of code or security bug fixes. So it's usually a good idea to keep up with the updates.

Majority of the updates will be for applications that don't require a restart, but once in a while a Kernel update will come through and you will have to restart the machine to use the new Kernel..
