Hey guys,

I have seen that there is a new firmware update for the S8 and I was wondering if I can do that with my rooted S8 and how.
Will I lose root? What do I have to attend to?

Greez, skrippi

Depends which root (sorry bad pun) you go down tbf. If you are rooted and have custom recovery then you can flash one of the updated roms which has the updated firmware as its base.

The other way to update would be to use odin to flash the official firmware, with this method though you will lose root.

I have just rooted the original firmware which was on the phone. Will I lose any data if I flash the newer firmware with odin?

with flashfire you could update the firmware without losing the man's data and root, but does not seem to work properly.
