WordPress is an application (app) that your website is built upon and it is constantly (daily) being updated and secured. This means that new features are added, old functionality is deprecated and security issues are fixed. Security updates are released whenever they need to be and core app updates are released at least quarterly.
Plugins add functionality to the WordPress app which isn’t in the out-of-the-box (the WordPress core) app. Similar to WordPress, plugins are constantly being updated and secured. Plugin updates are frequent, especially to fix security issues and multiple updates can be released per week.
Themes and theme frameworks, the look and feel of your website, are updated and released in the same way as plugins are.
All this means that updates and security fixes for your site are made available constantly and by not applying these updates you run the chance of your site not working properly or the risk of it being hacked through a known vulnerability.
You need to keep your website up-to-date regularly. That takes time and yes, sometimes applying updates can break your site.
