I suppose you could try it and see what happens.  That comes with a two-part warranty:  If it breaks, you own both pieces.

As you have been told earlier, the only way to update your system properly is to run this command:

yum update

After that you will have the latest version of Centos 6 on your system.

Anything other method will leave you with a system that is definitely insecure and probably broken.
