This is my first approach to software update. So this is the scenario:

Windows 2012 R2 Server DC and GC in TEST.LOCAL Domain.

For example I install WinZip via MSI and GPO and all works ok. In the futur WinZIP publish an update. So how to deploy this?
a) Creating a new GPO
b) Changing in the WinZIP deploy GPO the MSI, and set to redeploy to all
c) What else?

There is a best practice in this case?

Use Group Policy Editor to create a new package in Computer Configuration/Software Settings/Software Installation 
Choose Advanced.
There is a Upgrades tab to specify which older package should be upgraded by this one.  You can specify settings there, as usual test it because all MSIs are not created equally.
