[check_cpanel_rpms] Altered RPMs found on

For the past 3 or 4 days now I get this email below.

Problems were detected with cPanel-provided files which are RPM controlled.
If you did not make these changes intentionally, you can correct them by running:

> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix

The following RPMs are found to be altered from their original install state:

So my question is if I run this command

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix

will this also update my WHM/Cpanel? I'm asking becasue I do NOT want my WHM/cpanel updated. I'm using WHM 11.46.0 (build 19) and I do NOT want it updated.

I'm running 2 hosting sites on it and then I'm still running gaming servers on it and if I update whm/cpanel the "Game Server management" part would be removed and then I would have no control of the gaming servers which I still have clients on and am being paid. This is the reason why I can not update whm/cpanel.

But I would like to either stop getting these emails or fix the problem it claims I have. So will running the above command update whm/cpanel?
