On an RPM based system for example an upgrade of OS release is not
much more than a regular upgrade of packages. Do you do that every
other year as well?

I use test systems so I know what to expect, that can take some time
but the actual upgrades don't take more than 30 minutes.

I think it's no biggie doing an OS upgrade more often than every six
years no matter how many and complex servers one has.
