It's an implementation detail that you shouldn't have to worry about. The "Upgrade Image" button just upgrades the image format from QCOW to RAW. There is no immediate benefit, nor is there any drawback to doing this now. It relates to some upcoming code changes in our backend. Stay tuned for announcements on that front!
