You should simply open the package entitled:

TeX Support: LaTeX updater

and click "Install & Configure".

I updated my TeX installation first, but I hadn't done that in some  

The cool thing is that Gerben installs the LaTeX update in  
texmf.local, which means that it is found before the old LaTeX  
installation in texmf.tetex and so the one in texmf.tetex is ignored.  
Should you have trouble with the new LaTeX, you can just uninstall  
the LaTeX update using the i-Installer and you will be back up and  

I hope this helps.
