My Z2 is rooted. Today popped up a notification says "new update 17.1.A.2.69 available", asking me to connect to PC to proceed the update. I was wondering is the new update going to unroot my phone? Should I not install the updates? Thanks.

Yes it will unroot but your superSu or superuser app should have a OTA survival option, click it and try updating as root will attempt to "survive the update" it doesent always work so i dont recomend trying it

If not you can always reroot, it isn't too hard

I only know that usually updating from Sony PC Companion will download the whole firmware,so it's going to wipe your system,and the root will be gone,but you still can root it.
Your internal storage won't be wiped.
