What needs to be clarified and understood is that a regular theme update process only updates the actual theme files on the web server. The database is not touched, thereby, your stored serialized page/post content and theme settings etc remain untouched.
Rule of thumb and one of the reasons why we provide comprehensive and detailed update instructions, is for it to ensure updates are seamless. After you had updated, did you purge your caches? Are you running a child theme with modified files? Check them if you are. The theme update does not and cannot in itself, alter the actual Woocommerce product page/post content.
I am going to re-post the theme update instructions here, be sure to go through them. As good practice and with the intention of keeping your site maintained, when a 3rd party plugin update is due, apply it. When a WordPress update is due, apply the update. When a theme update is due, apply the theme update. Do not wait 3/6/12/18 months before updating your assets. This is imperative.
Releasing new features and shiny functions is only a portion of what our updates constitute. With the ever changing world of WordPress and technology, regular updates are provided so that you can keep your theme/site running smoothly and ahead of the curve
