How were the files shared with you?
If they sent you a share link to the file, and you downloaded or saved the file to your Dropbox, this is a one-time process that gives you a copy of the file as it exists at that time. You would have to access the share link each time you wanted an updated copy of the file.
If you were invited to a shared folder and they're editing the files within it, then they will automatically updated within your copy of the shared folder in your own Dropbox account.
