"man cron" and "man update" will give you a detailed introduction.

Turning off "cron" won't probably cause any harm unless you have something
like a news system running on your machine.

Turning off "update" can cause massive data loss. Unless you want to save
battery power on a notebook you should better leave it turned on.
