You did the smart thing - waiting a little bit and reading the forum first, congrats, too many beginners rush with the updates.
But you do have to update. Waiting this one out means, next update will pile more updates on top of this one and longer you wait, better chances you get that there something may go wrong. It is the nature of rolling distro.
Make a backup. If you have spare HDD, use clonezilla and just save whole disk before the update: (that way you can revert and return your system back to before the update if anything goes wrong, and you are not able to fix it)
And since you read this forum, you know you need to run update from the console. (good general practice anyway)
