The weather stuff is probably common for both desktops.
As far as the other stuff goes, check if they're already installed with
dpkg -l|egrep 'libmateweather|mate-menus|mate-panel'
If they are then it's probably OK to upgrade them.
When Cinnamon crashes it has a fallback mode. Prior to Mint18.2 this used gnome-panel in 18.2 and going forward this uses mate-panel. Thats why you see those updates. It's all good
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.
