Sometimes, people immediately upgrade the shiny new toy you're working on - right in the middle of you documenting it. This happened with PacketFence, which went from version 5.4.0 to 5.5.0 the day after I downloaded the installer!
Upgrading is fairly straightforward, and is covered on PacketFence's website:
As always with an update, be sure to read the notes that come with a release BEFORE you do an upgrade. These should generally be available at https://github.com/inverse-inc/packetfence/blob/stable/UPGRADE.asciidoc
You should only really upgrade things during a planned maintenance window - but if you're still in the experimental stage, you can do it any time. I'm probably going to stick to 5.4.0 until I'm done with the guide, and then run the update and see what happens!
I've actually now run an upgrade (to 5.5.1) see this post to follow the process.
