have you read this?

VBR files can go up to bitrates higher than the average 192 kbps, so
it's most likely they skip on those parts. If there is activity in the
background (like a running plugin) it naturally increases the chance
of getting skips.

Updating Rockbox is absolutely safe, the only critical part is the
bootloader, and that rarely requires updating.
