Plesk runs an autoinstaller program that pings back to check for updates 
and notifies users with sufficient privileges upon login (namely admin). 
You can upgrade directly from the web administration panel but i 
normally find it best to run /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller 
from CLI as root to monitor progress and catch errors as they happen. 
This update system really only affects Plesk packages and not OS 
packages. Frequent updates to the Application Library that contains the 
various installable Applications are available but i elect to just 
manually install them because of the lag between releases and updates of 
the package. This is also only my experience installing plesk on RH/FC
