    I know that automatic updates were introduced in version 9. It updates automatically after I boot the computer in the morning, but does it automatically update any other time? Or just by schedule?

    Unless you changed the settings it should update every two hours.

    It is set by default to update every 2 hours which means it checks if new updates are available, so it may update or just report that the system has the latest. You can change the time it updates in the main GUI/Administration/Scheduler.

    Yes, I have it set at 2 hours. But if there was some bad outbreak, would I have to wait until the scheduled 2 hours to get the definitions? Is there some automatic there?

    Breakouts don't take hours, they take days :D However, if a threat was just discovered, yes it would take 2 hours for the update to reach you.
