To update Homebrew, run:

brew update

The update command updates Homebrew itself and fetches the newest versions of all packages (but does not automatically update the packages).

To upgrade local packages, run:

brew upgrade

The upgrade command is used to upgrade outdated (and unpinned) packages. By default, when you run brew upgrade Homebrew will first run an update, which fetches the latest versions of your installed packages. Then upgrade will actually perform the version upgrade.
