You don't update the params.dat file when updating the software. Instead you should do these steps:

  1. Upgrade the software on each node
  2. Upgrade the blockchain protocol (using create upgrade / approvefrom) to support the new features
  3. If you want to change any of the blockchain parameters from their default values, upgrade those parameters using the same method as in step 2.
