A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, although underrated task. Not only can an update improve the overall performance of your sites, but it could also save you a great deal of issues down the road. An update may be released for a lot of reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly found security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and change the content that you have on the server. You may also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they may need a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will allow them to function adequately.
