How to Update/Upgrade phpMyAdmin


When I log into phpMyAdmin, I get a message that there is new version of phpMyAdmin5.1.1 available (installed version is 4.9.5).
How do I update/upgrade? Will updating to latest version impact any functionality, if so, is it possible to install multiple versions side-by-side?
