If you download the full package you can find the Themefiles directory from which you can find the latest version released folder says example 2.0. in that you can find the relevant theme folder. It depends on how you wish to update the theme via FTP Cllient or WordPress Theme updates method.

Before you update the theme everytime you need to backup your current theme folder. Take a backup of your modified files first and make a note of what changes you did in the files so that you can replace the altered code later as it will get replaced when you update the theme. If you are using the child theme then you don’t have to worry as you can simple replace the parent theme folder without any hesitation.

If you wish you can also take backup of your theme options from Appearance > Theme Options > Import/Export
