According to the help on Adobe's site, I can update all cross references as follows:

 

"To update all cross-references in a book, choose Update All Cross-References from the book panel menu. You are notified if any cross-references remain unresolved."

 

Um. What is the 'book panel menu' and where do I find it?

This tells me you are not using a book.

 

For an individual file, use the Update Cross References button at the bottom of Window > Type and Tables > Cross References. Either select the individual x-refs that need updating and click the button, or to update all x-refs, deselect all of them by clicking underneath the last one, and then click the button.

Thanks. Interesting difference: update all changed links: opt-click the update button. Update all the changed cross-references: deselect all and click the update button. Suggestion: opt-click everywhere (with a tooltip either way) would be better (consistency in the UI)

I agree and tried that before answering this morning. InDesign uses Alt/Opt+click in many of the panels (as do Photoshop and Illustrator) to boost the performance of a button.
