In a work environment? Or production? No way is there going to be an
instant update. In most cases, you need to test whether that update is
going to break things, and that will get you a ton more grief from users
and management.

Even if it's rated "critical", it needs to be tested one predetermined
systems before rolling it out to everyone.
