A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the general performance of your sites, but it can also save you lots of troubles down the road. An update can be released for a lot of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and modify the content you have on the server. You will also see an improved functionality of your web apps as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they could also require a later Operating system version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to function effectively.
