Good morning dreamwarrior. Try "sudo apt-get upgrade". It should notify you of any pending package updates. "update" is more along the lines synchronizing with the servers for an updated package list, however sometimes won't trigger the built-in updater within Zorin and notify of any that need to be upgraded. Let me know if this works.

The upgrade command will only update out of date packages on current version of Zorin against package list on both Zorin's and Ubuntu's repo. Won't upgrade Zorin OS to newer version. Should be safe in that regard. Although, one thing to note is that if there is a newer kernel it will want to update it. May have to be careful with that. Otherwise, shouldn't run across an issue.
