Most users probably started installing phpbb without sufficient knowledge of phpbb, not to mention php, apache, mysql etc.. and mess something up in the beginning.
A way to avoid that is to test on your local PC using a personal webserver (WAMP, LAMP, EAsyPHP, etc...), free to download and play around with, and no risk of doing something irrepairable.
Updating is something will wil be necessary again in the future, and most probably upgrading also.
So my suggestion = download a personal webserver package, play around with it, take a backup of your online forum, install it on localhost, and try to update it. 2 hours of spare time each day, and by Monday you should be confident enough to update your forum yourself.
Personal opinion: you want to update from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2. >> I would wait until 3.2.3 is available (otherwise you may have to manually edit some core files) and use the time to get some experience with phpbb.
