Hello @prabakarmarimuthu,

Note that those emails are sent by AWS.

This is up to you. You can upgrade your instance whenever you want or you need it. It is especially recommended when the new version solves a security issue.

Note that, to upgrade WP itself of any plugin you don’t need to migrate your instance.

Regards

Thanks for your response.!
