Is this the latest way for Sonos to force updates on users, because Sonos are more important than the end user?
What part of ‘its not convenient to update right now’, don't Sonos understand, but hide the music instead so effectively disabling my system until I am a good boy and do my update immediately as Sonos command? Are we all children of Sonos now or what?? Come on Sonos, stop trying to impose yourselves on users.

In all likelihood, your smartphone automatically updated the Sonos app from it’s App Store. When you then open the app and your Sonos system finds out that the software on your phone is more up to date than the software it has, it asks for an update because Sonos cannot guarantee proper operation while there is a software version discrepancy. Once in a while, we change something fairly substantially without there being much visually noticeable change - without the whole system operating in the same way, issues can occur. The most recent update is a classic example - we’ve changed the way in which speakers create the system.
The only reason Sonos is demanding an update is because it has technically already started (the app), and the job needs to finish.
