Yes 2.86 is the last version to date - and no - don't update it! If you do, there is a high risk that you will lose configuration and features, requiring a dealer visit and diagnostic fee to restore everything! The update is a major firmware release and as you are updating from an older vehicle it will lock the ECU into secure mode after the update. You can't restore or configure it with Diagbox - as it needs Citroen technician access and internet-connected configuration.

So if there are no issues, leave it alone. The RT6 thread is full of owners who have had to have this done after the 2.86 update.
