Yes it is a good idea as you will get security updates quickly. It
should be mostly taken care of already. The Update Manager lets you
check for updates at any time (it runs apt-get update for you) and
change the period of regular updates.

System - Administration - Update Manager - Settings - (password) - Updates

You should find that the default is to  check for updates daily but
you can change things here.
