MyCloud Mirror latest firmware update

Hello: I have a Gen 1 Western Digital MyCloud Mirror. When I try to update the firmware (2.11.178) it says I have the latest version. When I look online, I see that the latest version is 2.12.127. Given that Western Digital isn’t automatically updating the firmware to this version, should I update it manually or should I leave well alone?

The reason I wanted to update the firmware is that I have continued issues accessing the drive remotely.

Thanks Jonty.S. So the latest 2.12.127 firmware update is good and there’s no reason WD is not allowing automatic update?
