So when you do updates on CUCM 8 you have to do an upgrade, I thought an upgrade is one thing and update is something else, is it because its a linux server. Why do we an upgrade and not click on update button instead?
Since you are asking such a basic question, for such a serious operation, I would suggest you hire help for this, and learn from them on the job. Cisco works with partners who can be hired on an hourly basis for just this need.
You have to know that, upgrading a system like a CUCM is not just as simple as installing a file and clicking next. You have to consider all of the following, and maybe more:
Install and upgrade guides
Obtain upgrade licenses
Backup location and access
Disaster Recovery procedures
Locate original install discs
Locate original license files
Impact to services during upgrade
Feature functionality changes between versions
I would say, either get help with this for your first time, or build a lab environment, and practice the upgrade in the lab first.
To answer your immediate question: there are two types of "upgrades"
Upgrades that come in COP files and require only a service restart
Upgrades that are full ISO images and require a cluster reboot
Which one you do, depends on why you are "upgrading" your CUCM.
I.e., An upgrade from CUCM 8.0(3) to 8.5(1) is the second upgrade type.

the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
