From Help menu item select Internet Connectivity. The Preferences window opens with the Internet Connectivity tab in front. By default, this is set to automatically check for documentation updates and data updates. But I don't know when the checks are made: each time Mathematica starts or by some clock. However, there's a button available on that tab, "Update Local Indices from the Wolfram Research Server", which I presume does the same thing manually.
