There are not really "updates", if I understand what you mean by that correctly.
Reading the entire article, might help you understand better.

-release

Every May and November, there is a new version of OpenBSD announced and uploaded to the FTP servers. The only updates that a -release will get are security and "reliability" fixes. They're distributed as source code patches in the errata page. Errata announcements are sent out via the announce list, so you should subscribe to it. If you're running -release, you will have to manually download these patches, apply them to your /usr/src directory and rebuild whatever was affected. At the top of every patch, there are usually instructions on how to apply it and what needs to be rebuilt.

For i386/amd64 architectures syspatch(8) is an easier way to update the base installation.
syspatch(8) essentially installs a binary that was generated by OpenBSD developers using the patch referenced in @GarryR post.

Note that this only patches the core installation and not subsequently installed ports.

There are several mechanisms to update ports:
1) jggimi howto
2) M:tier updates
3) Firefox updates

So I should check for "upgrades" (new releases) next May and then November ?

I have subscribed to the announce mailing lists. Will I get a notification when a new

release is out ?

I am using 6.2 GENERIC.MP#0 amd64
