Any software updates needed for a 2015 TLX Advance SH-AWD?

I am one of the lucky owners of a "trouble-free": 2015 Acura TLX Advance SH-AWD, which I bought brand new in Nov 2014, and I now have almost 60,000 miles on the odometer.
I have been pleased with my TLX, and have had it serviced by Acura regularly, but wonder if there have been any software updates that I might need, but have not yet been notified about?
I welcome any suggestions on updates that I should request, at the time of my next required/routine service.
Thank you in advance for your advice.

There's a SW update for a recall having to do with the fuel system. Plus there was a SW update a couple years ago for the Nav/Entertainment system.

If you are satisfied with how the tranny works now, Id leave it alone.

Robs- I have the same car but with around 40k on it.
OP No hijack intended, but just to expand.

I have an occasional hard 1-2 or 2-3 shift, and Im due for a trans oil change per maintenance schedule. Would that service be likely help or hurt the shift issue? Im hesitant to let them do a SW refresh on the transmission from what Id read here prior of it making things worse.
Thoughts? Thanks 👍🏻

I did a transmission fluid change (drain and fill) BEFORE taking it in for the SW update. I did not notice any difference after the SW update and I feel the Transmission fluid change smoothed things out a bit.

I also have been driving the car everyday pretty much for 3yrs so I may just be used to how the transmission shifts now. I did take it into the dealership a couple times to point out the rough shifts but the last time I brought it in before the fuel pump software update it seemed to have smoothed out.
