    If I get owt like that I always just go to the website and login. If it's legit, when logged into paypal it will ask you to update.

    Make sure you do not follow any links though. Just to go the top bar and type www.paypal.com. Any links from emails could send you to a dodgy paypal which looks exactly the same.
