Either will work, though I prefer the combo as it has the prior updates included in the package where as the incremental is only the specific point update.

Bot will work. But you could also just use Menu Bar > :apple: > Software Update, if your Mac is connected to the internet, to get the correct update.

Software update, upgrade--what's the difference?
Key differences

A software update is usually downloadable free of charge; a software upgrade usually is not.
A software upgrade usually increments the first "dot" number of a product (for example Mac OS X v10.6, Mac OS X v10.5); a downloadable software update usually increments second "dot" number (for example, Mac OS X v10.6.8, Mac OS X v10.5.8).
