Hi,
None of the actual Important updates are a problem
I wouldn't load any of the Optional section ones though,

You can make sure no Recommended updates are mixed into the Important ones by reviewing and confirming you update settings are like this
Which they seem to be set correctly
I would create a system image before loading updates though it is just a good practice now days
Imaging with free Macrium
