Apparently, you already have Photoshop installed and this is just a version update. So why should you not update? You pay for regular updates through your subscription...

I have both Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 and Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 installed, and Adobe Bridge CC 2018 and Adobe Bridge CC 2019. Often (sometimes) when an update is provided there are some notes I can read before I decide whether to install, to see what is new or fixed, so I know what to look for in the new version. But in this case I don't know what CCX Process version 2.6.2.18 is nor are there any release notes provided (that I can find at least).
I keep both versions of PS and BR because I find the 2019 version buggy and slow and I often go back to the more stable 2018 version. So I am a bit gun-shy of randomly installing updates.
Can anyone offer some insight into what this update provides?

I'm 'getting ready' to make another post about this upgrading business. I have a subscription and when I upgraded to V20, the first time, the app PS,  started to act buggy. I have made posts here and followed the suggestions. I have had tech support reinstall the application twice and so far the issues just become different. I have had the [windows] laptop checked (no trouble found) out and increased the memory. So far, what has reduced the issues, is using the C: drive for the files I'm working with, not a remote. Here are just two examples of what is happening to me, still: frequently, almost always, when using [Copy] then the [Paste] will paste the previous copied section. I can copy the same section several times and the buffer isn't cleared out until I purge it. Here is a good one too, when moving a section/layer it 'trails' (anyone remember what that is?) and will remain there until I hide the layers and then unhide them again. 

It could be my laptop, but it has been checked. Moving my work to the C: drive has helped a little, but something is wrong and I am glad I DO NOT depend on the support from Adobe. I will be very happy to eat crow if indeed it is the laptop. 

Good Luck!

I upgraded from CS6 to the recent version.  Big Mistake.  Full of bugs.  I have found several, some have by changed.  But even though I reported it, if you use the "," or "." to move to the prior or next brush, it jumps randomly, often to the second from the start.   Unfortunately I am unable to go back to CS6 so I just keep trying workarounds for this and other issues to get my work done.
