Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that could have lots of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes in the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system overall and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could instantly influence the functionality of your websites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their newest versions require an updated Operating System so as to function properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
