Never done this before so a little help would be appreciated.

Launched Cydia, Get the message: One or more essential packages are currently out of date. If these upgrades are not performed you are likely to encounter errors.

It gives me 3 options: Upgrade Essential, Complete Upgrade, Ignore (Temporary)

Which should i choose?

First time launching cydia, then Complete Upgrade is for you. Although if you choose the other option it would still upgrade the same files since you donnot have any 3rd party cydia apps installed yet.

Its going to upgrade the files which have been changed since the release of your current cydia. Which is always good.

Later in usage if it asks you to upgrade again Complete Upgrade will upgrade everything that has a upgrade available, and Essential Upgrade will upgrade the 'core' cydia required programs.
