The procedure to update VirtueMart 2 is the same as for the installation.
24 4 Valérie Isaksen
The update procedure will update all the files, and the tables if needed.
25 4 Valérie Isaksen
You should always update BOTH components: com_virtuemart.2.x.y.zip and com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip

You can also use the built in Akeeba Release System which is included in both components. In this case, you must also update BOTH components.
