    It might affect a program or two to be honest, but well worth it. There are a number security updates that need to be in place that you don't have.

    Once you upgrade, a number of your apps will upgrade as well, so you'll get a better experience as well.

    What I would suggest:

    Buy a SSD (your current drive is old)

    Backup current drive to TimeMachine

    Install new drive, install a fresh macOS

    Then restore the rest from TM backup

  • as jim suggested … security updates are the most critical aspect of the update.
