Do like this:
Somewhere in your document, insert one instance of all the paragraph
tags you wish to update. They don't need to have any contents, just
make sure to not include any other paragraph formats and to not use
any overrides.

Select all of the paragraphs and open the Paragraph Designer.
The Paragraph Tag field should be empty as you have selected a
range of different paragraphs.
Set the Next Pgf Tag and click Update All. Use the option
All Matching Tags in Selection.

Should work OK.
