Don't forget, LO is included in many distros.  It might not be the
absolute latest, but it would be farily recent.

Well if you use Ubuntu's LTS [long term support] OS you upgrade the OS
every two years.  There is a lot of changes in LO over even a year's
worth of time, let alone two.

so sounds like you should look into a 'rolling release' like LMDE or Linux Mint Debian Edition or Manjaro.

my systems desperately need updating so I guess I feel little need to be up2date.

I don't know how these releases treat LO; in this discussion we need to be careful not to confuse the difficulties of upgrading LO with supposed difficulties of upgrading the operating system.
