Update functions.php

When the plugin asks you to update the functions.php file, you should only update the child theme’s functions.php file.

If you update both the parent theme and the child theme you will most likely get an error saying the function name exists twice. If you only updated the parent theme, this would be overwritten with the next theme update.
