this is a good time to use google takeout to back up your acct

also side loading an apk from an unknown source on the internet is a bad idea

In general, this is certainly correct. As for this specific link it is the file downloaded from APKMirror (here) which is a trustable source.

I always thought an update of an app is ok since the signatures have to match in order to update

You are correct. Since the signatures wouldn't match, Android would not allow you to update it.
