I think this part is clear. SpamAssassin rule updates haven't been
updated since then. The stuff you should be downloading by automatically
running "sa-update" daily.

And this shows the probable reason why.
People provide data to the SpamAssassin project on their spams and non-spams
(hams) like this: https://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/NightlyMassCheck
If we get data on less than 150,000 hams or spams, rule (score) generation
doesn't happen. As you can see above, we're below that threshold on ham.
So rules haven't been updated.
A substantial part of the reason for this is that new masscheck accounts
have not been allowed for some time, as mentioned on the above web page.

Yup, it should not cause your SpamAssassin to stop functioning.
