Why UPDATE from Analysis tools in ArcGIS 10.3.1 is not available to me, does it need some specific license or can it be download separately? How is it possible to achieve exactly the same result as with UPDATE without it?

  • It requires Advanced License level. However, what exactly is it that you want to do? If just combine geometries, use the Merge or Append functions. – Martin May 30 '16 at 10:27
  • @Martin thank you, unfortunately do not have advanced licence. I think Merge function will help – Anuket May 30 '16 at 10:37
  • Good, try that! :) Hint: See those locks on some functions? - I would guess that they show up on those you don't have license for. – Martin May 30 '16 at 10:54

    I am pretty sure that you will be able to do this using the Union tool, followed by the Select/Dissolve, using a Basic level license. Just give Union a test and look at the attribute values you have to work with once that has run. – PolyGeo May 30 '16 at 11:15
  • @PolyGeo Thank you very much! This combination is really what I was searching for. – Anuket May 30 '16 at 12:10

Update tool requires ArcGIS Advanced license. Check the bottom page of the Update tool help. If you don't have ArcGIS advanced license, then it will be disabled.
