That's actually good advice, sort of.

You shouldn't run updates directly on a production machine where uptime is
important. This isn't a suse or linux thing, it's true everywhere. You should
always run a test environment identical to your crucial production machine
where you install new patches and updates first, and only after everything
checks out do you install them on the production system.
