I think "Refresh" would be OK. In fact, I used the greek word for
"refresh" for translating the existing "Update" string in greek. It
just made more sense that way. I believe that translations don't have
to be word-for-word, so if another word makes more sense in your
language, it's better to use that instead.

On the other hand, I don't think there's any confusion between
"Update" and "Mark all upgrades", as it is right now (it's not "Mark
all updates", that would have been confusing indeed). Just my 2c...

Best regards,
