[Tutor] Python 3.6 update?

Mint 18.1
Default python3 = 3.5
Python 3.6 installed for use by a virtual environment.

Update manager just informed me of an update for python 3.6 to 3.6.7-1. 
When I started to install it, I got a dialog saying:

this upgrade will trigger additional changes. The following 2 packages 
will be removed  python3-dev & python3-venv.

I am wondering what will happen to the virtual environment I have 
installed that uses python 3.6. Will the 2 packages be replaced and the 
virtual environment continue to work or is there some other steps I will 
need to take.

Regards,  Jim
