Description

Update term based on arguments provided.

The $args will indiscriminately override all values with the same field name. Care must be taken to not override important information need to update or update will fail (or perhaps create a new term, neither would be acceptable).

Defaults will set 'alias_of', 'description', 'parent', and 'slug' if not defined in $args already.

'alias_of' will create a term group, if it doesn't already exist, and update it for the $term.

If the 'slug' argument in $args is missing, then the 'name' in $args will be used. It should also be noted that if you set 'slug' and it isn't unique then a WP_Error will be passed back. If you don't pass any slug, then a unique one will be created for you.

For what can be overrode in $args, check the term scheme can contain and stay away from the term keys.
