After updating my add-ons  does not work or does not work properly

I might be a little confused, so help me out. I think what you are saying is that there is a new set of Blocks add-ons (set#3) which can be automatically loaded into the BLOCKS development sidebar. Correct? 
Yes it is correct. in the #3 addon blocks will be integrated into developer Sidebar once you add them , than you can use it every time in the app , 
Integration is simple - go to /app_root_folder/ addons/add2 open it and replace all files in this folder to files from new addon file, in this folder you can see ba2.js file and Previews folder, remove it all with new addon files. (So it might little tricky, but that only way to do do this in local machine with browser based local application,

The basic idea of the second addon from the first and the third is that the javascripts and styles sheets of relating blocks downloaded to each block separately (not to app js/css core), only when necessary (when your open/import block file in app), you can see it in some of the blocks after the opening / import in the code editors in app. 
It's a bit complicated mechanics of adding blocks than drag from sidebar, but greatly expands the possibilities of mixing blocks(maybe little similar to the modern web-component logic). 
At the same time do not have to increase the js/css core of the BLOCKS framework and not to download large library of scripts and styles to saved website template, It also shows that you can just open files, and re-use them in future. So you can create your own block sections with script ans css, and them reused them when you need. Similar to #2 addon. 

What about online version?

All of the BLOCKS local version disadvantages is eliminated in the online version . We also decided to replace drag of the blocks from sidebar to a simple choice from big window gallery, find secions with tags, and insert by click,
and tried make a selection of sections more comfortable It seems to us, but we'd love to hear your opinion, is the most important information for us, your history of use of the product) video demo 

Also you could create any blocks, templates, (with any scripts and styles, images, ) any snippets, than mix it add they like componets to any curent project from this projects gallery
