log: fix referring to uninitialized variable caused assertion failed [#2546]

Log application got coredump due to failed assertion in Log agent.
The problem was caused by referring to uninitialized variable `bool updated`.

Previously, `updated` variable was initialized when the method
`FetchAndIncreaseRefCounter` or `FetchAndDecreaseRefCounter` was called.

The value of `updated` is true, means the reference counter has been updated,
false otherwise. So, if `updated` variable was unluckily assigned `true`
in default, reference counter could be restored unexpectedly.

___ You have incorrectly put/left internal data in your comments/files
    (i.e. internal bug tracking tool IDs, product names etc)

___ You have not given any evidence of testing beyond basic build tests.
    Demonstrate some level of runtime or other sanity testing.

___ You have ^M present in some of your files. These have to be removed.

___ You have needlessly changed whitespace or added whitespace crimes
    like trailing spaces, or spaces before tabs.

___ You need to refactor your submission into logical chunks; there is
    too much content into a single commit.

___ You have extraneous garbage in your review (merge commits etc)

___ You have giant attachments which should never have been sent;
    Instead you should place your content in a public tree to be pulled.

___ You have too many commits attached to an e-mail; resend as threaded
    commits, or place in a public tree for a pull.

___ You have resent this content multiple times without a clear indication
    of what has changed between each re-send.

___ You have failed to adequately and individually address all of the
