Here is my best explanation:

'update display?' is the definition.

'refresh' can be an answer for 'update' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'display?' bit.

'recalled slave interrupting that woman' is the subsidiary indication.

'recalled' says the letters should be written backwards.

'slave' becomes 'serf' (I've seen this before).

'interrupting' is an insertion indicator.

'that woman' becomes 'her' (I've seen this before**).

'serf' going inside 'her' is 'hserfer'.

'hserfer' backwards is 'refresh'.

'to' is the link.
