In short, it is important to keep your site up-to-date for the security of your site, and compatibility with the web/search engines standards.
Keeping your site updated is an important preventative measure. Your website is like your house in the sense it needs to be repaired. For example, if your roof needs repairs but if you don’t repair it, it will eventually cause issues whether that means leaking, an animal makes a home in it, etc. This is the same as your website if you do not keep your site up-to-date it is susceptible to being hacked by spammers, or it’s functionality may stop working as it originally did because it is out-of-date.
