Please be realistic and professional. You simply can not run a
professional business computer operating system like Centos with some
packages so old they are probably a major security risk and other
packages up-to-date.

What will your customer or user say when they discover their data has
been hacked or corrupted simply because someone did not want to
incorporate the latest safe versions of packages already installed ?

If your car is recalled to fit a better and safer version of an already
installed component, are you really going to refuse ? 

Your stance is very unwise and misinformed.
