Lumix G9 Firmware Upgrade

I just upgraded from a Lumix G85 to a Lumix G9 and I am very happy with the new body. I am very much into wildlife photography and one thing I am interested in is the animal tracking mode - which I was assured is available on the body I purchased. The body was sold with version I.3 firmware which does not have the function I want, but was assured by the salesman that version 1.3 is current. I looked at the Panasonic web site and there is a new firmware version 2.0 which has the function.

Pretty clear update instructions are provided. Has anybody had any experience with upgrading? It is a brand new camera body and I guess I am just looking for a bit of hand-holding before I commit to this path. Also will the update erase custom settings I have entered (ie: C1-C3)?

Stupid question:  it is a software update, why is it referred to as firmware?

Thank you
