OpenElec is not getting much love these days. You would be better off moving to LibreElec instead. The new updated version is out if I am not mistaking. It also gets updated regularly, unlike OpenElec.

You yourself don't update Kodi when using OpenELEC/LibreELEC. The distribution itself provides the update. The latest version of LibreELEC (8.0.2) comes packaged with Kodi 17.3.
If Kodi comes out with a new version, say Kodi 17.4 (unlikely), then you would have to wait until LibreELEC brings out a new version with Kodi 17.4 included. You cannot update Kodi yourself, you update LibreELEC.

You can manually update OpenElec and LibreElec it's just a case of dropping the tarball in the .update folder and rebooting.

You can also update OpenElec to LibreElec but I would do a full backup first.
Missing out one release could cause problems so maybe update to Jarvis first then krypton.
