He says that you should only update your bios if absolutely necessary. Is this true?

This is true. If a BIOS update goes wrong, your motherboard is useless.

Also, there's no need to pay him - it's not too hard to do.

 

I was talking to my friend at school to see if he could update my bios for me if I paid him. There is nothing wrong with my bios just would like to keep it updated. He says that you should only update your bios if absolutely necessary. Is this true?

For the most part there is no need to update your BIOS unless you have a specific need to do so. Even then, it's not really something you need to pay someone else to do. In some cases you'll have to update the BIOS. For example, if you've got an older AM4 motherboard and you'd like to use a newer Ryzen CPU you'd need to update the BIOS first. It's really easy to do if you ever do need to.
