I have Microsoft Search Server 2010 Express - 14.0.4763.1000 installed and want to upgrade it at least to Service Pack 1. There apears to be a service pack for SharePoint Foundation 2010 and one for Microsoft Search Server 2010 however I cannot find one specific to Search Server 2010 Express.

An which cumulative updates to I have to install exactly after SP1 to bring it up to date?

Search Server Express is updated just like the full Search Server product. You can find the SP1 listings here for all office server products:

CU should only be applied when they fix a "specific" problem you are having, and have been tested in your environment. It is not uncommon for a SharePoint CU to contain regressions, that is they tend to break something, even while fixing something else.

Todd Klindt has a pretty good list of build numbers and regressions associated with CU's here:

Thank you very much. So is it correct that I only need to install Search Server SP1 and not the SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP1 as well? – Flash265 Jan 14 '13 at 11:10
You should apply foundation SP1 first, then Server SP1. Also review the Known issues paper on SP1 which details other requirements after installation – Jesus Shelby Jan 15 '13 at 2:29
