Because the Calendar is not in the wordpress Repository you will have to update it manually.
There is planned updater for the Calendar but it?s not implemented yet.
Steps to update manually:

STEPS (2) AND (4) ARE VERY importANT OTHERWISE YOUR SQL DATABASE WON?T UPDATE!

cal - include only following calendars. Example: [stachethemes_ec cal=1,2,3] where 1,2,3 are calendar ids
view - sets default view. Example [stachethemes_ec view="month"] Values are agenda, month, week, day
show_views - show/hide top menu views buttons. Example [stachethemes_ec show_views=0] Values are 1 or 0.
show_top - show/hide top menu. Example [stachethemes_ec show_top=0] Values are 1 or 0.
agenda_cal_display - show/hide agenda calendar slider from agenda view. Example [stachethemes_ec agenda_cal_display=0] Values are 1 or 0.
agenda_get_n - number of events to show in agenda view per "look for more" click. Example [stachethemes_ec agenda_get_n=5]
So for displaying upcoming events you can use something like following:
[stachethemes_ec view="agenda" show_top=0 agenda_cal_display=0 cal=1]
This will display the agenda accordion only with upcoming events from calendar with id 1
Show only today events from calendars 2,3 example:
[stachethemes_ec view="day" show_top=0 cal=2,3]
From Dashboard go to pages or posts
Add New page or Post, fill desired Post/page title and inside the Post/page content write [stachethemes_ec].
Click Publish. This page will display the calendar when visited. You can place the shortcode in any existing page or Post as well.
If you are uncomfortable writing shortcodes the plugin supports Visual Composer as well.
To create a calendar category go to your “Dashboard” then “Stachethemes Event Calendar” and click “Calendars” from the menu. Fill Calendar Name, Color, Timezone and Visibility (public or private) and click on “Create Calendar” button. A new calendar should appear under “List with your created calendars”.
To create an event go to your “Dashboard” go to “Stachethemes Event Calendar” and click “Events” from the menu. Select “Calendar” from the list or create one if you haven?t created one yet. Click on “Add Event” button. Fill desired event details and click “Add Event”.
Keep in mind that most event tabs are optional. You can fill all the tabs before clicking on the “Add Event” button.
1. Go to Events.
2. Select Calendar.
3. Click Add Event or Edit Event.
4. Click on WooCommerce tab
5. From the dropdown select the WooCommerce product you want to add to the product.
6. Click Add to Event
All of the products logic is handled by WooCommerce itself. We are simply linking the product to the event. You don?t write prices etc. through our plugin. When you are creating an event there is a new tab ?WooCommerce? with list of all products you have.
You can select product(s) from the list and click ?Add to Event?.
On the front-end if the event has linked products, the calendar will pull from WooCommerce the product details along with buy button, short description, prices etc. On clicking the buy button the plugin sends ajax request to WooCommerce plugin and then refreshes the Cart on success.
