Of the two sentences, first sentence is 'present perfect ' and second is 'past tense'
Here the first sentence correctly fits the context.
You made the updates very recently. Hence present perfect is good to go. The second sentence would imply something happened in the past. But the updates were made very recently, prompted by the mail received.
To clear all this, I have taken the definitions and examples of 'present perfect ' from studyandexam.com:
Present Perfect Tense
It is used to expressed an action which happened or completed in past but usually the action which happened or completed at a short time before now (near past) not a very long time before now. Specific time such as two years ago, last week or that day is usually not used in the sentences of in this tense. It means that this tense expresses the action whose time when it happened, is not exactly specified but it sounds to refer to some action that happened or completed in near past.
Rules: Auxiliary verb “has or have” is used in sentence. 3rd form of verb (past participle) is used as main verb in sentence.
Structure of Sentence
• Subject + Auxiliary verb + main verb (past participle) + Subject
• Subject + has/have + 3rd form of verb or past participle + subject
If the subject is “He, She, It, singular or proper name” then auxiliary verb “has” is used after subject in sentence.
If subject is “You, They or plural” then auxiliary verb “have” is used after subject in sentence.
I have eaten meal
She has learnt a lesson
• Subject + Auxiliary verb + NOT + main verb (past participle) + Subject
• Subject + has/have + NOT + 3rd form of verb or past participle + subject
Rules for using auxiliary verb “has or have” in negative sentence are same as mentioned above.
I have not eaten meal.
She has not learnt a lesson.
Hope It helps. Thank you.
