Yes, or instlal cpu-microcode and then deinstall what's the difference?

I don't get the question. You just run the commands suggested in the 
updating entry, and then can remove the old devcpu packages. Or vice versa.

The order in which you do these is irrelevant anyway, the microcode is 
applied when the rc script is ran (at boot time usually).
