If you are a current SaaS customer, your tenant was automatically updated to 4.1.16 (note:  you and your end users must still update the App Center App and your wrapped apps accordingly).  If you use an on-premise version of Symantec App Center and have not received the latest update, you can download it from File Connect. The .iso file is available  approximately one week to 10 days after the SaaS release date.

The issues addressed in these release notes may or may not be relevant depending on the features that are included with your license.
