A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update improve the general performance of your sites, but it could also save you a lot of problems down the road. An update can be released for a lot of reasons, the most frequent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the server. You will also see an improved overall performance of your web programs as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might need a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will permit them to function effectively.
