I believe your assumption seems wrong:
With the Ubuntu Desktop CD one can play without touching the own
existing installations, i.e. the original installation of whatever ...
... or install it from that CD !
Just read the menu selection at its boot !!
If one installs, it's setup fully !!!
Why updates ???
It has nothing to do with bringing "the system up to speed" !!
Updates are bugfixes or updates:
Since the CD has been produced time has passed and some bugs got fixed
and the bugfixes go for updates. Some further development end in a new
version and its version #, so again update from version i.e. Firefox
188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 or even 3.0 !!!
Every OS and SW do have these service of updates if provided from its
Good luck and cheers, svobi
