New and deprecated Collector Update fields

Starting from V6.6, the Collector is now capable of updating itself by retrieving the latest version from the Engine. With this enhancement the Nexthink Updater is now redundant, and it has therefore been deprecated. As a result, there are some new fields relating to the Collector's ability to update itself, and some deprecated fields that related to the Updater.

The following fields have been added to support the Collector's ability to update itself:
