To update or not to update?

Home / Linux / CentOS / To update or not to update?

All my technical life, I knew and followed this simple rule

New updates to any application or component are meant to improve and fix the bugs present in it. Downloading new updates ensures that you system is up-to-update, has fixes to all those bugs you have been getting annoyed with and more stable.

Unfortunately not every IT department thinks that, especially the one I am facing at work. According to them, the new updates should only be applied IF and only IF they offer some new functionality (duhh!). Hello! what happened to the bug-fixes that are promised with these updates?

Anyway, my Linux box tells me that I have the following updates available but some nut-head thinks its a waste of precious bandwidth

Here is my question, would you update your operating system on a regular basis or would you prefer not to? and WHY?
