I'm running the free version of Pulse Secure Connect right now but can find updates or the latest release packages anywhere on the site. I have 9.0R2 but I think there have been some updates since I set this up. We only have a few users testing it right now which is why I havent purchased a license. The download screen says free for as long as you like for upto 3 users. So I'm assuming updates must be available.
the upgrades are available on my.pulsesecure.net after purchasing support. you can try to download a new version of the VM; you can also try to reach out to your local account team to see if they can help with an upgrade
