You can also download the latest update inside of ON1 Photo RAW 2021 by navigating to Help < Check for Updates from the top toolbar.
This checks with the ON1 update server to see if you are running the current version. If there is a newer version, you will be notified and be walked through the update process.
If you're already using the latest version, you will see a pop-up that looks like this:
