Update the the distribution images.

Its super annoying that everytime i spawn a new vm there are a lot of updates, these images are missing a lot of security updates and should really be updated periodically so when someone spawns a new droplet they don't have to spend 5-10 minutes waiting for it to update.

    Hi, Currently, our base OS images are updated periodically in order to pick up point releases a security fixes. For instance, our CentOS 7 image was updated just this week while our Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04 images were updated last week. Though, we can definitely some room to improve both transparency around the process and the cadence. Thanks for the feedback!
