This update for ucode-intel fixes the following issues:

  • This reverts the ucode-intel package back to the 20170707 release.

Shall we make this up- (down-) grade if the computer is working properly?

You don’t have to if your computer is working properly.
But in that case, it won’t make a difference really anyway I think.

IIRC, the microcode updates for certain Intel CPUs have been retracted (by intel themselves actually) because they caused boot failures and other problems.
The previous update has been removed from the update repos in January already, but now the openSUSE maintainers decided to release a new update to actually rollback systems that already installed it.
