The canonical "true/current" version of everything is found in the compendium, here (subscription required to use as more than an index). There are, at present, three current "Cleric" classes you can play. I define a cleric class as anything that counts as a cleric for purposes of feats, beyond that of multi-class. There is the "original" Templar Cleric. ...

The Rules Compendium has all the updated rules for the core system, like changes to skills and skill challenge DCs and whatnot. You should pick that up if you don't mind buying another book. Changes to the races and classes are pretty specific. Do you mind editing the question to list what your players are planning to play? I think the biggest change ...
No. The books are not updated; if you buy them, you are expected take care of the updates yourself, by perusing the official rule update PDFs. The alternative used to be simple: buy a subscription to D&D Insider. However, with the fifth edition coming soon, who knows how long they will keep the 4e sites running...
Essentials errata ends up with all the rest of the updates. The archive breaks it down by book.
It all started with Player's Handbook 3, which offered alternative, non-fixed ability score bonuses for its new races. This new design was then adopted as the default and included in subsequent books. Some of the "core" races of Player's Handbook and Player's Handbook 2 have then been updated in the Essentials line books (Heroes of the Fallen Lands + Heroes ...
The answer is quite simple, both versions of the cleric are valid and errata'd separately. If you have an interest in the errata for the PHB1 cleric, check the errata for the PHB1. If you have a DDI subscription, the characterbuilder allows you two build them as two sperate versions.
It now does a lot less damage, From the compendium: Hit: Dexterity modifier damage, and the target is blinded until the end of your next turn. Miss: Dexterity modifier damage.
The class compendium is an update to the PHB1 version of the Cleric. The Cleric in Essentials (Warpriest), is a different build of the cleric. The Class Compendium was a book that was scheduled to be released this year by Wizards. They cancelled the book and now the content is being released through Dragon magazine, one class at a time. They have now done ...
In, I believe, one of the WotC podcasts, they stated that they wanted to produce less errata than they had been creating, and that the huge errata list that came out around the time of the 1st essentials books was intended to be a major reset to that end.  According to this WotC will release typographical and other errors errata monthly, and reserve ...
Ah, twigblights. And the baby white dragon, I had him as a pet for a long time. The only errata published for Sunless Citadel was notes directly from author Bruce Cordell, and they're located here. Reflex Save DC for pit trap on p. 20: "this old pit trap should be DC 16." Missing word: "...the last word in the boxed description of encounter 42 is ...
Updates for online articles will only involve changing the online article itself. As Wizards will no longer provide complete magazine downloads, I'm not sure how you are supposed to know something has changed.
Another recommendation picking up the Rules Compendium, as most of the skills were rewritten. The errata is broken down by book. It's pretty easy to skim through and look for sections that are relevant to your game. At a minimum, I would review the PH sections for the classes your players are using, as class features and first level powers may have ...
