Seagate tends to have great products. It is always a possibility that it could fail, but that is the same no matter which brand.

If it is software, then there is no need to install it. It is usually some sort of backup or drive help utility, and is unnecessary.

However if it is a firmware update, then it should be installed. A lot of people look at firmware updates as "If it's not broke, don't fix it" which is fine, but I tend to run them early, instead of regretting later.
