Amazon's version of Linux on AWS allows for selecting different versions of
packages, from their repository.  You might want to spin up a box there and
take a look.  I don't know if all the packages are the "latest" but they've
got newer packages than RHEL or CentOS, etc.

Alternatively you can always point to other repositories like EPEL to get
new packages.  Or compile your own debs or rpms.
