I'm not sure which LaTeX distribution is currently installed on the server (does not look like TeXLive), but it seems to be a couple of several years behind the latest version.

$ latex --version
pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
kpathsea version 3.5.4
Copyright (C) 1997-2004 Peter Breitenlohner (eTeX)/Han The Thanh (pdfTeX).
Kpathsea is copyright (C) 1997-2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Can we update LaTeX to a latest version? Thanks!

We do not update the system installed packages unless is a security risk. We do this to maintain stability. If you require a more up-to-date version you are free to download the source code and build it.
