Recommended updates are, well, recommended. You can read the stable release updates policy. They fall into three categories: Critical bugs such as data loss, impossibility to install, etc. Updates to data files which become necessary over time, such as the timezone database, antivirus signatures, hardware support lists, etc. Some of these may be code ...

I solve the problem by using Amrish instructions at Ask Ubuntu Stack Exchange, i.e. by using the following code: sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf sudo ln -s ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf sudo resolvconf -u

Originally, the tool worked when we were at the GA release of RHEL 7 (7.0). At this point, it does not. It is absolutely not recommended. You are better off doing a clean installation at all times. This involves taking a backup of what's necessary (such as static web content, etc), installing the system, and restoring from backup. Their tools are broken ...
